Our history

Reynolds & Read was established on the Isle of Wight in 1981 by friends Geoff Reynolds and Paul Read in a small yard in Gunville. The company started with just one lorry and one digger. In 1987 we moved to Burnt House Lane before relocating to Blackwater Garage in 2000 - our home for 16 years. We moved to our current premises, Brickfields, in January 2017.

Our present

From humble beginnings, Reynolds & Read has since grown to a fleet of 29 lorries and over 80 items of plant. We are now a family-run business, employing over 50 qualified and very experienced members of staff and have expanded to mainland coverage with 8 wheeled tippers available all around the South Coast. To find out more about our company, please contact us.
