D J THOMAS A’I FEIBION  – road haulier 2

For a decade and more, I have been working with D J Thomas of Llanarth; a road haulage company. Alan and Emyr carried on the business started by their father in the 1950’s, initially hauling livestock for local farmers in the area.

They built the business into quite a significant one in the ensuing years, by working all hours, and moving goods all over the UK and Europe.

Now, they’ve reached ‘ retirement age ‘ , they’ve  decided to sell the yard, and the fleet of trucks, and ‘ take it easy ‘. This old MAN was parked up in the corner of the yard, when I went to take some photographs of the buildings, yards, and old and newer trucks before it all moves onto the next owner.
