Family History

The Flegg Projects team are proud of our heritage and history. The business of moving machinery has come a long way since its early foundations in the mid-1970s. We’re fortunate to be one of the few to have embraced, driven and enjoyed our industry’s evolution and maturity.

Here are some highlights from our long journey, so far.

1975

Flegg Transport formed. Operating one flatbed lorry from Uxbridge.

Lorry

1982

The first employee joins Flegg, John Petch, who amazingly remains with the company today. First expansion takes place, purchasing additional vehicles which necessitates a move to a larger yard at High Wycombe.

Jayson Flegg

1986

Flegg quickly outgrows its premises again with more employees and further vehicles added to the fleet. This facilitates another move to more expansive premises at Aston Clinton.

Flegg Transport maintained its family links, when during 1986 son Jayson joined the firm, initially as driver’s mate. Today he is Managing Director!

Kiersty Cox

1997

Jayson’s sister, Kiersty joined the firm to support Lyn with the accounts side of the business and like her brother has remained involved over the years latterly becoming Financial Director.

Large lorry

1997

Jayson purchases 4 new DAF’s to join the existing fleet of inherited or second-hand trucks. Flegg can now undertake much larger scale projects.

The 1990’s saw twists and turns for all industries and it threw up plenty of challenges but also many opportunities for Flegg.

Fleet in 1998

1998

Flegg Transport acquires a local transport business which brings with it new customers and enables the fleet to be further enhanced. This acquisition also brings new blood into the business – a great boost to the current team.

Mark Marshall

Flegg Transport takes over the lease of a 40,000 sq. ft. warehouse facility in Aston Clinton and in turn adds industrial warehouse services and packing to their portfolio.

A new strategy is unveiled as the Directors decide to diversify, offering on-site services for major installation works. As a result, Flegg Projects is born, the installation service side to compliment Flegg Transport.

Forklift and lorry

2009

After a few years of consolidation, like many businesses post 2008, comes a time for growth so Flegg Projects start to look North!
