It's A Family Affair
Rupert has an MSc in Tropical Agriculture and spent his professional career in The Third World working in aid and development, a far cry from salvaging the past. Pru trained and worked as a journalist before joining Rupert in Africa. Together they have built English Salvage into the UK's best stocked reclamation yard with a global reputation. A lot of hard work has gone into building the business, an astonishing design and architectural resource for the unusual and the rare. The couple travel extensively on buying trips and have a keen design eye and an uncanny ability to spot the next big trend. Rupert and Prus' eldest son Barney has a sports degree from Durham University and join the family business full time after graduating. Together they have expanded English Salvage to the new site at Wellington Home and Gardens and have been growing year on year ever since.
Chris is the manager and head of sales. He is the level headed and methodical person that holds the team together and makes sure that everything that needs to be done is! He has been with English Salvage the longest and knows the yard stock inside and out.
We worked with web developers to make this fabulous and user friendly site that truly reflects the eclectic nature of the business and showcases all the incredible stock. Our brilliant studio photographer John is tasked with the tricky process of photographing all the items which enter the yard, from the miniature to the massive! We pride ourselves on our website and we think English Salvage may be the only yard that lists ALL its stock. The website is updated every day, a labour of love which is down to Harad who also handles our marketing.
Helen helps Chris out with sales and is responsible for shipping and deliveries. She is a friendly voice at the end of the phone for customers and a valued member of staff.
Everyday we have things from as small as a key to as large as a complete building coming in and going out of the yard. The logistics of storage, collection and delivery is not to be underestimated. We have a great team who struggle valiantly to keep up with Rupert and Prus' obsessive buying and the packaging and shipping of our constant sales. Our hard working yard staff brave the great British weather, day in and day out. The team is headed by yard manager Matt, ably supported by Dom.
