Our History   On page

Our History

A1’s story starts back in 1964, when the Pike Family — Mick, Jean and Russell — moved to Highland Avenue which was a working pig farm. Mick brought in extra money for the family working as a rag-and-bone man. When he wasn’t off on the horse and cart in search of things to buy and sell, he and Russell boosted the family’s income by giving pony rides to children. 

A few years later, Silver Birches came on the market and the Pike Family’s hard work paid off. They bought the site, which is where our main scrap yard sits today.
