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. Tim’s Daughter, Robyn, joined the firm in January 2008 as Accounts Assistant.
Roger Hunt sadly passed away on the 11th of February 2015. He was well known in the farming community having built the R.Hunt Ltd business over the past 45 years. He believed in service first and sales second, a foundation stone of all his decisions.
Roger Edward Hunt, 9th September 1937 – 11th February 2015…
