About Swadlincote Diesel
Swadlincote Diesel was formed in 1972 by Phil Lockwood who was an ex Merlin engineer and one of the first apprentices was the current Managing Director Shane Richins.
Following a management buyout in the early 1980’s Shane took over the company at the tender age of 18, and worked out of an old railway shed in Belmont Street, Swadlincote. Over the years the company has continued to evolve and expand so that in its present form Swadlincote diesel employs 18 members of staff. See more about our staff.
Continued success has lead to growth and expansion within the company and the premises now cover approximately 108,000 sq feet containing workshops, parts, storage and office space.
