Sluggett Limited was established in 1977 when founder, John Sluggett, bought a Leyland Bison 6 wheeler from Eric Short of Tiverton. The Leyland was then traded in for an 8 Wheeler Leyland Daf with a Rolls Royce engine, the first in the Southwest. The following year another 8 wheeler was purchased from Commercial Motors Exeter. As the company gained more customers John employed his first driver and over the years expanded his fleet and the drivers.

The company was run from the family home at Milton Damerel but in 2010 a new site was purchased in Holsworthy Industrial Estate and developed.

This site can easily park all the lorries the company has today. It also has a large heavy goods vehicle workshop. The company now employ 11 drivers, 1 night loader, 2 office staff and 4 mechanics, who service and repair the Sluggett fleet as well as other local firms’ vehicles.
