About Us

Specialist transportation company

Working within the construction and engineering sectors.


We are a family owned specialist transportation company working within the construction and engineering sectors.

In 2014 we moved to our present site in Barnsley. Now in the hands of the third and fourth generations, we aim to maintain our reputation for reliable efficient service.

History of our company

A P Hollingworth Ltd was established in 1923 by Albert Parker Hollingworth in Upper Cumberworth, near Huddersfield. He started with one vehicle transporting stone from local quarries in the area.

After the Second World War he was joined by his eldest son, Desmond, and more vehicles were to follow. The company then began moving machinery for the many engineering companies around Huddersfield and Barnsley.
