Our History

Originally founded as Trustland (Homes) Ltd in 1972 by Derek Barrington and Leslie Owens (Senior), the business has evolved throughout the years to reflect the diversification of various business investments. In 1983 Trustland (Homes) Ltd became Trustland Construction Ltd following a boost in commercial based work, before re-branding once more to “The Trustland Group Ltd” after investing in the establishment of the sustainability business Recipro and the popular Chester restaurant and hotel The Coach House Inn.
2018 has now seen the return of the core business to Trustland Construction Ltd. As part of a management buy out Suzanne Foran, Dave Leatt and Jonathan Bagley have acquired the whole of the construction business and Les Owens (Junior) has taken full ownership of the other group businesses. Our board of directors that also includes John Carroll, have an accumulated 99 years of company experience and will continue to lead the company into the next chapter, ensuring that Trustland will become the best it can possibly be.
