About

The Neath HRT Team


Herbert R Thomas was established in 1926 specifically to provide professional advice to the agricultural and rural community of Glamorgan – a role it continues to provide to this day.

The current Partners and Staff still possess the same in-depth regional and local knowledge which have ensured the continued success of the company.
