Pall-Ex celebrates haulage partner’s milestone anniversary

One of Pall-Ex’s member companies has recorded its 40th anniversary.  Besides marking four decades in business, Taylors Transport International of Huthwaite, Nottinghamshire, has also clocked up 10 years of international haulage.

To meet increasing demand, the company has recently moved to larger premises which span three acres.  Taylors has experienced significant growth since becoming a member of Pall-Ex in 2013.  The firm currently turns over £600,000 annually through the network, which facilitates contracts in the UK and abroad.

In tandem with its 10th anniversary of service across Europe, Taylors has purchased a fleet of 14 new Volvo trucks in the company’s red and white livery as well as a specially designed one-off Volvo FH4 6x2 PAsuper in jet black to mark four decades on the road.

Managing director Alan Taylor said: “It’s rewarding for everyone involved in our team to be able to mark this special milestone with a move to bigger and better facilities.  The new premises and fleet enable us to operate more efficiently and improve service.

“My father started out with a van delivering newspapers to local shops.  We’ve come a long way since.  The company now turns over £20 million and employs more than 300 staff.  We’ve endured several recessions but still manage to continuously build great relationships with our customers and suppliers.  Long may it continue.”

Kevin Buchanan, group managing director at Pall-Ex Group, said: “Taylors is a shining example of what can be achieved by working hard to ensure a consistently high quality of service for customers.  Its integrity and profile makes it an ideal match for Pall-Ex, and we look forward to celebrating future milestones in partnership with Taylors.”
