R T Sweeper Services


Russell Trahearn

Manufacturing Engineering and Management, 2000

Russell Trahearn founded his company – RT Sweeper Services – in 2010.

His interest in road sweepers dates back to his childhood. His family’s business grew to become a leading Midlands hire company and is now part of a successful national corporation.

Russell joined his family’s business in 1990, and later spent four years working at Scarab Sweepers to consolidate his industry knowledge and skills.

RT Sweeper Services now provides vehicle service and repairs, self-drive hire, and sales to councils and contractors across the UK.


Having a can-do attitude – offering comprehensive and competitive support to clients – has helped my business to grow and acquire a reputation for excellence within the industry.
