Get to know our founder, Richard.
Richard Ledger, Managing Director
Richard grew up around engineering, helping out in his dad's engineering business as a kid. He used to go in and fix the machines in the old lace factories in and around Nottingham. Richard studied Physics at Cambridge (with Stephen Hawking!). On graduation, he spent a lot of time building electronic devices and came up with some incredible inventions, including motors people see in today's everyday machines. In 2005, when chatting with a friend who worked in a food factory, he asked Richard if he could build a machine to butter bread - and so Millitec was born!
