Gunn JCB’s relationship with Ridgway Rentals goes back many years and sales director, Mark Roberts means to ensure this relationship continues onto the fourth generation!

William, like his Father & Grandfather, is a huge car enthusiast, so was over the moon to be presented with a framed Aston Martin Formula One Team cap, signed by drivers Sebastian Vettel & Lance Stroll.

JCB is sponsor partner of the Aston Martin Formula One Team this year and Gunn was luckily able to secure this rare gift for Ridgway’s next generation.

Mark Roberts says “I was so pleased to be able to get this for William. We have a strong relationship with Ridgway and obviously want this to continue for many years to come.

William, the fourth-generation at Ridgway, is the great, grandson of Ridgway Rentals founder, Mr Bob Jones who began the origins of Ridgway Rentals over 50 years ago.

Stuart Jones, Ridgway Managing Director, says

“We have always valued the great relationship we have with Gunn JCB, which goes back to the 1960s

The commitment and comradery remain as strong today and, by the look at William’s face on receiving this gift, will go on in future generations. Nothing like getting them hooked in when they’re young!

Our long-standing commitment to Gunn has played a part in us obtaining the latest equipment from the JCB production line, the 245XR (pictured) is just one of the latest designs that have excited the industry and we are glad to have been amongst the first to get hold of one”.
