Warwick Ward (Machinery)

Warwick Ward (machinery) Ltd. was founded in 1970 by Mr Warwick Ward and has grown into the largest stockist and supplier of new & used wheel loaders, earthmoving equipment, waste recycling equipment and spare parts in Europe.

Over 200 good working loading shovels of all makes and models are always available and over 6,000 machines have been dismantled for spare parts. The family connection is still very much in evidence today. Warwick’s son’s Ashley and Matthew, both now with over 25 years service themselves at Warwick Ward, have since the year 2000 been running the company and the growth since that time has been considerable with turnover increasing to seven times the volume it was when they took over the reins from their father. The goal over this period of continued growth has been to maintain and further improve the company’s position as the market leader in its field and this has undoubtedly been achieved with yet still more potential for further growth over the years to come. The company has grown from strength to strength and continues to expand.
