The L&R Group of Companies were formed by Lloyd R. Hardy in 1997. There were no other employees at that time – the owner handled anything and everything. After several months of a lot of work, little sleep, and no paycheck, Lloyd hired the first employee and the company began to grow slowly. Over the years, the company purchased equipment and hired qualified employees. After Lloyds passing in 2006, his two sons, Ryan and Regan Hardy took over the family-owned business. They worked long hours and all profit that was realized was invested back into the company. The company philosophy of controlled growth allowed L&R to keep debt low and the company strong. Today, The L&R Group of Companies has the best employees in the industry and a growing fleet. Although some of our early equipment is no longer with us, the two original owners are still the only owners, and the first employee is still part of the L&R family.
