We believe that our people are what makes Trustland so successful. We are a third-generation company owned by senior management and our board of 3 directors have a total of over 80 years of company experience combined.
Originally founded as Trustland (Homes) Ltd in 1972 by Derek Barrington and Leslie Owens (Senior), the business has evolved throughout the years to reflect the diversification of various business investments. In 1983 Trustland (Homes) Ltd became Trustland Construction Ltd following a boost in commercial based work, before re-branding once more to “The Trustland Group Ltd” after investing in the establishment of the sustainability business Recipro and the popular Chester restaurant and hotel The Coach House Inn.
As part of a management buy out in 2018 Suzanne Foran, Dave Leatt and Jonathan Bagley acquired the whole of the construction business and Les Owens (Junior) took full ownership of the other group businesses. This has signalled the return to construction as our core business and focus. Our board of directors have accumulated over 80 years of company experience and will continue to lead the company into the next chapter, ensuring that Trustland Construction will become the best it can possibly be.
