Meet the Team


Ricky Hemmings
Group Managing Director

Ricky has been Managing Director of Ardula Group, Limited comprising Ardula Limited, PTC (SE) Limited, and Mantransco Limited since June 2015. Responsible for all aspects of the business including commercial management, business development, environmental and transport compliance, and building on the excellent customer service record of a business which has been trading for over 25 years.  The acquisition of the group with Phil Brasier in 2017 has given Ricky fresh opportunity to develop new avenues


Phil Brasier
Group Transport Director

Phil is the most experienced member of the team, having some 30 years in and around tipper trucks, the last 17 of which have been with Ardula.  In 2017 he and co-director Ricky Hemmings completed the acquisition of the Ardula group, and for Phil this was just reward for many years of hard work and dedication, which he continues to apply with renewed effort as the businesses move forward


Kevin Jones
Transport Planner - Artics

In spring 2018, Kevin stepped down from the cab of his lorry and sat at the transport planner's desk, bringing with him 30 years of driving experience.  Customers, suppliers and most importantly drivers have seen improvements in the way our business is conducted, with an increased range of products hauled.  In addition to construction aggregates and waste, more recently vehicles have hauled both grain and compost, with meticulous cleaning in between of course, to effectively cover both ends of the food chain.  This wider approach will continue in 2019


Greg Ibbotson
Transport Co-ordinator

Greg joined the Ardula group in 2016 as an apprentice Transport Co-ordinator, and passed his vocational qualifications with flying colours, adding FORS Practitioner accreditation in 2017. He has become an integral part of the transport team, linking well with the other haulage businesses


Jameson Walters
Driver logistics manager

Jamie came through the ranks to initially take up a split driving/driver training role, but showed such good aptitude toward driver development that the role became full time, and he's now a vital member of the team.  He combines years of driving experience with a growing understanding of driver health, safety, and wellbeing, and he oversees our FORS and CLOCS compliance


Our drivers
HGV Class 1 and 2

We aim to provide long term secure and safe working conditions, and in return they are out in all weathers, in all locations, delivering and collecting all manner of construction materials.
