Bill Purvis

Founder and Owner

Hi I’m Bill born and bred in Northumberland (right here at Rock Nab actually). I’ve spent most of my working life involved with wagons starting back in 1972 driving livestock wagons for Redpath Bros at Wooler. For many years I did long distance work on a wide variety of different jobs including a two year spell in the early nineties running to Europe. Nowadays I am usually just helping out on a tipper round the doors, with no great desire to go looking for extreme traffic.
If I am not driving I am usually to be found either in the office in front of a computer or in the workshop servicing the wagons and doing all the weekly maintenance tasks necessary to ensure that all the wagons are in tip top condition and available to go out at a moments notice.
I do all this so that D Renton & Sons continues to provide a friendly first class service to all our customers,  with a desire for their total satisfaction.

Transport Manager

Hi, I’m Eddie, a long time resident of this beautiful part of the world.
I started driving 7.5 tonne trucks at the age of 18 for 3 years, then worked in warehousing and logistics for a further 9 years before getting my Class 1 HGV licence. I have been driving wagons since then on a wide variety of different jobs on both local and long distance work.
I have worked for D Renton & Sons for the past 10 years or so and studied for and have now passed exams to be a fully qualified Transport Manager. I have taken part in courses to renew my machine driver tickets for telehandler, loading shovel and 360 excavators. I do the daily traffic planning, organising the work for the drivers and liaising with customers, so am now normally the first point of contact for everyone.

Hi I’m Volvo tipper!
Along with my best mates the DAF tippers we are the ones who really make this business happen. Sure those two up there are the ones up from dawn to dusk organising all the different jobs for us to do, but it is our strong Swedish steel bodies that do all the hard graft, especially on the rubble and muck shifting jobs.
I say “me” but I mean “we” as there are about 10 of us in the family most of the time. I shouldn’t complain though as the guys do their best to keep us in tip top condition, washed every weekend and serviced regularly with any little blemishes sorted straight away. I have extra eyes ( they call them safety cameras) and all the latest safety equipment to keep me safe and performing efficiently. It really is a good company to work for.
