Leeds Parcel Company has moved to a three-acre site in Beeston, which is many times the size of its old premises, to accommodate its surging growth.
MD Dave Wilby says the staff were very proud to finally start work in the new premises which they first earmarked a year ago. “We have almost doubled our turnover in two years, from some £3.5m to £6m, with our pallet and parcels business both expanding rapidly. The old site was far too small for us, but here we can move to the next level with our business,” he says. “This is a family-run and family-oriented firm. It was a proud day.”
The new site takes LPC from 18,000 to 35,000 square feet of warehousing, with 46 loading doors. The growing fleet of artics, 18-tonners, 7.5-tonners and vans gets its own workshop and, crucially, a large yard.
“We have invested £750,000 in vehicles over the past 12 months, as well as committing to £200,000 a year in premises costs on a long lease,” says Wilby. “This is a serious investment in vehicles and property but we’re also investing in our people, training drivers up to C+E level. Our aim is to grow and now we have what it takes.”
