Rands & Wilson Feeds Limited was established in September 2005 by John Rands and Mark Wilson, using their 50 years joint experience in the animal feed industry. Those 50 years were spent working for two, long standing, family animal feed manufacturing businesses, Clark & Butcher Ltd and Parker Brothers Ltd.
In 2010 John Rands left the business to spend more time with his family and pursue other avenues, although sad to see John leave the Rands & Wilson brand carries on.
We welcomed Tim Wilson to the team in 2011 who is learning the feed industry ropes! Tim makes Rands & Wilson a family business and is aiming to take the reins when Mark is put out to pasture! (but not for a few years yet!)
The philosophy now, as it was when the doors opened in 2005, traditional values of quality, service and trust that we know we can offer to you, the customer.
So, how far have we come since the first day of trading, where we sold six bags of feed in the first week! Sent shipments of the Rands & Wilson brand internationally, attended horse shows with a trade stand, sponsored show jumping leagues, supported the local charities, held a open day, hosted BHS lectures and sponsored local riders/drivers this is just the beginning and we look forward to what the future brings. But of course this would all not be possible without the continued support from our customers and we really thank you for continuing to purchase from us and if you haven’t please come and see us, we have lots to offer.
Our skills have allowed us to personally design, build and commission our own plant to give a consistent, clean and high quality product. A plant designed and built to manufacture small, individual, specialist runs of animal feed. This can include rabbit, guinea pig, hamster, goat, and sheep rations.
We take pride in our reputation of having extremely high quality mixes, this is achieved by sourcing the highest quality of raw materials available.
We have our own specially formulated diets which we feel cover most of the requirements of the discerning leisure horse owner. We have the ability to manufacture any leisure, competition or racing horse mix, requested by either yourselves, your vet, our nutritionist or a diet that is formulated using our own qualified nutritionist.
We feel that quality of service is very important in today’s market, we at Rands & Wilson appreciate that you, the customer, do not always want to be tied to minimum order restrictions of quantity and delivery times.
We are in a position to offer a service that none of our competitors can, that being quality feed, sensibly priced with same day manufacture and Next Day Delivery.
