    Default Rustons Engineering CO. (RECO) Huntingdon


    Rustons Engineering CO Ltd (RECO) was founded in 1955. I believe the site in Huntingdon was the first ever RECO site built. RECO produced farming machinery and became quite successful. In 2011 the founder of RECO, Harold Ruston died from Motor Neurone Disease. I believe this was the cause of the closure of the site. RECO in St Neots has now closed as well but not been discovered by the vandals yet. Enjoy the pics!

    I originally posted this report on 28DL but I much prefer this site so I decided to re-post here!

    Some decent shots considering it's an empty warehouse.
