HISTORY

W.Finch & Co was founded in 1924. Walter Finch moved to the small farming village of Bookham and operated horse drawn tip carts in a round the village distributing aggregate from the local train station to assist building the roadways and infrastructure which we now operate from. As the business developed into the motorized vehicle period, W.Finch picked up contracts from coal and log rounds, to local domestic moves.

After supporting the war effort Walter's son, Snowy was approached by a local engineer to relocate the 1st commercial dry cleaning machine. This was the turning point for the company - the company had no experience in this field but with work at a premium in the early 1950's Snowy decided to diversify. This contract was to launch the company as it is today. Over the years we have grown in experience and confidence to handle any machine move. With current legislation being tight we have learnt and adopted the correct approach to this industry and can satisfy our customers to the standards which are now required.

Since Richard Finch's retirement in 2012 following his 47 years devotion to the company, his son Andrew Finch looks to maintain the company's reliable standards set out by his forefathers. Developing a youthful workforce he strives to offer an enthusiastic attitude to his clients in a generally old fashioned industry.
