Welcome to A E Gough & Sons Ltd
Simon joined the business when he left school at 16 working as a mechanic. There were fewer lorries on the road at this time so at 21 he went on the road full time. He loved the driving but in 2006 he came off the road and joined Michael in the Office. He became crucial in the transport department due to his vast geographical knowledge. Simon works hard to get the lorries looking as good as they do and keeping on top of the maintenance. He takes great pride in the appearance of the fleet. Both Simon and Michael made great partners as they both excel in different areas. Following the move to the new office he has worked closely with Daniel to pass on his knowledge of the traffic planning. In November 2021 Simon decided to step back from his directorship and cut down his hours. Simon is still working part-time Simons dedication and hard work over the years has been fantastic and he definitely deserves time to relax and take life a little more easy.
