About Us2021-01-28T15:20:32+00:00


Based in Northamptonshire and built on over 30-years of highly-skilled engineering expertise, R&S is your one stop solution for cleaning equipment hire, purchase, service and repairs.


We’re proud to introduce our team of engineering and cleaning product experts who are on-hand to ensure we are responsive to our client’s demands.

Sarah took the reigns at R&S in 2016 and since then the client portfolio has gone from strength-to-strength based on Sarah’s knowledge and understandng of the industrial cleaning sector and supported by her ability to forge strong supplier partnerships. Sarah is extremely passionate about delivering real value for clients through offering her winning-formula of tailored solutions underpinned with engineering expertise. When she has any free time you can usually find her at the gym (and not just looking at the mirror as Richard likes to point out!) or somewhere hot and far away from home, provided there is WIFI (of course!)
Richard is an RAF trained engineer with over 30-years engineering experience in ATEX environments. Richard heads up the engineering division at R&S and manages all technical operations in the workshop including repairing equipment faults and on-site presence and support at key-accounts, not to mention the special projects that we complete for specialist cleaning operations. Outside of the working day, Richard is a thinker and inventor and loves nothing more than having a tinker, and developing new innovations. When he is not brewing his own ales and potions he loves a nice ruby with the other half.
Suzanne oversees the development of business relationships with existing and new clients.  Suzanne is the first point of contact for client enquiries and is always ready with a friendly and enthusiastic approach to solving your industrial cleaning equipment requirements.

You’ve probably heard the saying ‘there is only one…’ this phrase captures Suzanne perfectly! 

Laura-Beth joined the R&S team in 2019 as our Operations Manager. Laura comes with many years’ experience under her belt from working within a B2B telemarketing environment. Laura-Beth thrives on being the person in charge of the planning and execution of the routine functions and activities, behind the scenes of R&S. Alongside that, she aims to improve the current business processes to increase the quality, productivity and efficiencies for all at R&S; both colleagues and customers.

In her spare time, Laura-Beth enjoys spending time with her family near & far, enjoying the fresh outdoors with her beloved dog and playing sport.

Kirsty Joined the R&S team in 2019. Kirsty keeps financial records updated, prepares financial reports and reconciles bank statements, plus supporting the R&S Sales and Ops team with any other office duties. Kirsty is a busy mum of 3, to relax Kirsty can be found getting lost within a book and enjoying time with her family.
Richard is an experienced engineer having qualified whilst working for an engineering company based in London. Richard served 6-years in the Armed Forces. In his spare time he likes to relax with his wife and R&S colleague, Suzanne and enjoys watching a good-old American TV series.
Mark takes care of all scheduled servicing and general maintenance and repairs to your cleaning machines. Mark earned his engineering qualifications whilst serving in the Royal Navy, Fleet Air Arm but is now enjoying the civilian life. Mark is an avid football fan and in his spare time likes to support his local club as a season ticket holder at the mighty Cobblers!
Alex joined R&S, taking his first employed role as an apprentice at the tender age of 18 – Alex hit the ground running, taking lead from his engineering-peers and is showing promise of becoming an all-round exceptional member of the team – in addition to his on the tools learning, Alex also claims to make ‘the best cup of coffee’!
…milk and sugar please Alex!
Taylor joined R&S in 2018 on a placement in support of her Business Studies Level 3 college course.  Taylor takes care of all administration tasks at R&S, supporting the team where required.  Her aspiration is to go on to University to study Law and when she isn’t working or hasn’t got her head in her books, she can be found on the road taking her driving lessons.
Dressing for the job he wants, Eddie joins the R&S team as the youngest member at just 3 months old. Our four-legged addition brings to the team a fun, play-hard attitude balanced with a keen eye for keeping guard. When Eddie is not greeting visitors or keeping the team in check he can be found working at his ergonomically designed workspace (i.e bed).
