We are proud and excited to announce that our Operations Director Rob Richmond has been promoted to the role of Managing Director with immediate effect. The founder and owner of the business, Robert Lomax will be vacating the Managing Director seat and stepping into the role of company CEO.
Rob joined the business eight years ago as a site manager and quickly progressed to become an estimator. It was in this role that Rob proposed a new model for the business which would see LRL delivering felt roofing projects alongside cold applied liquids for the first time, with him operating as the General Manager of the felt division.
Over the course of the following year, the business re-branded and Rob was appointed as Operations Director. He has since been crucial to the ongoing success and growth of the business having implemented significant changes and practices whilst growing an exceptional contracts team which is consistently delivering a wide range of high-quality projects. His commitment for living out the company values, “Safety, Quality, Value, delivered with Integrity” is central to ensuring that LRL builds on its reputation for delivering an excellent service to every customer, every time.
In 2019 Rob was recognised for his expertise externally by the NFRC and was invited to take a seat as the North West representative on their Health & Safety Committee, building on LRL’s reputation for innovative thinking and excellence.
We are sure that everyone at LRL, all our clients, supply partners and friends of the business would like to join us in congratulating Rob and wish him the best of luck in this new role.
We are excited to embark on this next chapter of the company’s journey.

The works were executed on time and to a very high quality, efficiently, courteously and safely. The attitude of the site staff has been commented on in very favourable terms by the building occupiers and Veolia site contact, very much reflecting the attitude of the Head Office staff and front end works.
LRL have completed numerous projects for us, all were delivered on time, safely and in a competent manner.
LRL assisted greatly in the identification of problems and designing a solution to provide us with a new roof to last many years. The work required working around some very critical areas where school children were in close proximity.
