Ray Britland Contractors was first established in 2008, coming off the back of G & P Britland. In 1983 Ray started his contracting business at the very young age of 16 after the sudden death of his father. Growing up working on the family dairy farm Ray had to find new ways to diversify the business as the dairy farm wasn’t big enough to provide an income.

The contracting side of G & P Britland steadily increased over the years and even managed to employ 2 full time workers. After a serious accident in 2001, Ray decided to give up the family dairy farm and concentrate on the contracting side of the business. Work back then included new road projects and mitigation works on Manchester Airport runway 2.

Moving forward to 2008 due to the growth of the business and wanting to split the contracting business away from the farming side Ray decided to create Ray Britland Contracting Limited. Ever since then the business has gone from strength to strength. Ray’s wife Kathryn joined the business in 2012 to help with the clerical side on the business. We now employ 40 full time members of staff and continue to welcome more contracts on a daily basis.

It's been good to get out and start the Grass Mowing Season. Ground was soft but using the Robocut ensured we made no mess and cut the embankment to Specification. Mcconnells remote control Robocuts can be used for areas where access can be tight, operator safety is required or steep embankments. #groundsmaintenance #vegetationmanagement #vegetationclearance #grasscutting #grassmowing #embankmentmowing #steepbankmowing #Mcconnell #robocut #therighttoolforthejob #maintenancecut #hireavailable #remotecontrol ...

A nice throwback to Embankment Mowing before the lovely Weather we are currently having. Reform Metrac H7RX Model coupled with a Kuhn Pro 210 front Flail. Regular maintenance mowing to encourage growth and ground integrity through a firm grass base and for Embankment inspection. Easy gradient for the Metrac #groundsmaintenance #mowing #flailmower #kuhn #reform #reformwerke #embankmentmowing #vegetationmanagement #grasscutting #bankingtractor #steepbankmowing #grasscutter #allterraintraction #therighttoolforthejob ...
