About the Caplor Group

Caplor is an established business based in rural Herefordshire (West Midlands) owned by the Williams family. The team are genuinely focused on making a positive impact in terms of people, planet and profit; they’ve gone the extra mile in the county, regionally and internationally.

Award winning business

Our award winning family business has operated from Caplor Farm in Fownhope since 1923 and has a rich history being first run by Gareth’s grandfather, then by his father, mother and now by the Caplor team.

Throughout each strand of the business a commitment towards achieving a sustainable future which not only benefits but involves the local and wider community prevails.  Rather than focusing merely on profitability, we advocate a sustainable approach of ‘triple bottom-line accounting’ with an awareness of social, environmental and economic issues.

Four strands to the Caplor Group

The Caplor group has evolved from a third generation family business into four businesses.  The latest strand is the addition of Caplor Horizons in 2014 (set up as an independent charity and exceeded expectations in its inaugural 18 months).

Award winning renewable energy business designing and installing solar systems for business, communities and homes.

Low cost rural lettings and property management services in Herefordshire and South Wales.

Mixed arable farm and livery delivered in partnership through the family network.

Works with both UK and international organisations to strengthen leadership and teams, review and develop effective strategies and help improve advocacy.

Caplor is proud to be a business contributing towards a sustainable rural economy in Herefordshire. Our core message is to conserve and enhance the long-term social and environmental future of the planet. One way we achieve this is by inspiring home owners, businesses and communities to install renewable energy systems.
