About Us

We believe that our people are what makes Trustland so successful. We are a third-generation company owned by senior management.

Our History

 

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 Directors 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 signaled the return to construction as our core business and focus. In March 2023 Suzanne took early retirement, leaving Jon and Dave to continue to lead the company into the next chapter.
