The company began to see significant growth in the 80’s and 90’s, and by 2001 had a fleet of around 50 vehicles, and served several industries such as packaging dairy and steel.
In 2001, the decision was taken to lead the firm into the PalletFORCE Pallet network for the first time. With our strong reputation in delivering full load consignments, it wasn’t long before the pallet network volumes began to grow. This, coupled with a booming artic fleet meant another relocation was on the cards, and the company decided to build a brand new distribution centre on the Drum Industrial Estate in Chester-le-Street.
The new site was opened in December 2003 and was where the fleet of now over 100 articulated vehicles operated from. In 2008, the company had outgrown this facility and the Director’s decided to move the business to a 22 acre site in Chester-le-Street, with a 330,000 sq ft Warehousing facility.
In 2011 we then expanded again moving into the Old Co-op building around the corner on the Drum Industrial Estate. We have proudly transformed it into The Business Village, hosting many businesses along side ourselves. We now have the capacity for many more services as we continue to grow. With a massive 13 acre site, and a distribution network across the UK we can cater for any businesses logistical needs.
