After finishing an apprenticeship with Anna Valley Tractors, Roger Hunt decided to set up by himself, with the help of his wife Faith. They worked from their bungalow fixing tractors and combine harvesters for a number of farmers.
Within a few years the business was growing, and John Deere approached Roger offering him the agency for this area. This was the start of R.Hunt Ltd.
Before long it was obvious that larger premises would be needed and they decided to move to Chilbolton.The business has now been established for 36 years, with additional depots being set up on the Isle of Wight, at North Warnborough and Tilshead.
The company has now grown into one of the largest dealerships in the UK with eldest son Tim as Managing Director. Tims Daughter, Robyn, joined the firm in January 2008 as Accounts Assistant.
January 2009 saw the opening of the new building at the Chilbolton premises. If you havent been to see us yet, please visit us soon!
