Our history extends all the way back to 1970 when Richard Johnson (father of present owner and group managing director Robert) went into partnership with colleague Alan Bragan to form an engineering business at a small workshop in Halifax.
Their initial intention had been to serve to the textile industry (both had been part of a maintenance team at a Batley mill), but the business soon grew as it secured customers from the local chemical industry
Throughout the 1990s, under the direction of the sons of the founders, a combination of organic growth and acquisition saw the company experience impressive growth, and in 1999 the Richard Alan Group was formed.
Today the Dewsbury-based group is made up of the following companies, each successful in its own right and tasked with achieving sustained results in its individual markets but together offering a range of complementary services.
The complete engineering solution: Design, fabrication, installation and integrated services. We provide services in Process Pipework and Equipment, Structural Steelwork, Civil & Foundation Design, Electrical Instrumentation & Control Design to 2D and 3D Conceptual designs and Business Information Modelling (BIM).
