About Us

Established in 1973 with a single lorry and the aim of forming a haulage service with a focus on excellent customer service, this family-run company has seen four decades of sustained growth amid an increasingly harsh economic environment and we now boast a fleet of over 50 vehicles, 80 trailers, and over 90 staff. Continued expansion and forward-thinking gives our business a competitive edge and our recent investment in our fleet underpins our positivity for the future. Over 45 years later, we still hold the customer at the heart of our business.

Continued expansion and forward-thinking!

The Defining Moment…

A key moment in the Company’s development was the acquisition of new storage, office and workshop facilities at Glynneath in 1978. The new complex served as a springboard into groupage work. Our economy groupage service enables customers to simply book as much space as they need on-board a vehicle. The Company rapidly expanded its turnover and range of customers. Three decades of sustained growth has been achieved amid an increasingly hostile economic climate. Between 1998 and 2000, the firm achieved a growth rate of 53.5%, and was named amongst the Western Mail’s prestigious top 50 fastest growing companies in Wales (2001).
