Acklea was founded by David Phizacklea back in 2003 who formed the business out of his previous landscaping businesses. David’s vast experience of landscaping quickly led him to become one of the forerunners when Chapter 8 was introduced as he could not find the equipment in the market that he thought was needed. Through his experience he designed many of the pieces of equipment that you still see today, changing Traffic Management forever. Today our customers benefit from his lasting imprint upon the business and extensive knowledge passed onto our team. We are proud to say that we now sit on the Traffic Management Specification Committees of some of the largest infrastructure companies within the UK.
