My name is John Ford, and I am the founder of J.F. Services, and I would like to tell you a little about myself.On leaving school at 15 I started my working life as an apprentice for Bamford Farm Machinery of Uttoxeter. I completed my apprenticeship and worked in construction and agriculture for many years.
One of my employers was F.B. Atkins of Derby for a number of years, where I was a heavy goods vehicle driver, working in the traffic office and as garage foreman at a later date. I decided in the 1980's that I would like to be an owner driver and bought myself a low-loader and contracted to City Plant of Derby moving heavy plant to and from construction sites all over the Midlands
