Expect Distribution adds Beaphar and Fibo to its roster of warehousing and distribution clients
Expect Distribution has had a strong start to 2021, winning two new clients for its warehousing and distribution offering.
The five-year contracts with global pet pharmaceutical and healthcare manufacturer Beaphar and multi-million pound Norwegian panelling business Fibo begin in January 2021, creating an additional 11 jobs at Expect’s Bradford and Halifax sites. Expect have hired a warehouse operative, contract manager and team leader roles across both locations.
Neil Rushworth, Managing Director for Expect Distribution said, “What better way to start the year than announcing not one, but two, new clients to add to our roster. This is testament to the Expect team and our warehousing and distribution offering, which continues to go from strength to strength.
“As we face an unsettling year ahead, and reflect on 2020, we are even more grateful and fortunate to be in a position to create new jobs at Expect, at a time when they are so needed and especially in our local area. We are looking forward to working with the teams at Beaphar and Fibo over the coming years.”
Shaun Williams Distribution and Logisitcs Manager at Beaphar said, “In 2020 we were shipping our UK customer orders directly from our warehouse in The Netherlands. As Brexit loomed, I was asked by the Steering group at Beaphar to source a solution to the ever complex and ever-changing environment of Brexit. As part of our strategy to safeguard our UK Customers we started our journey with Expect Distribution back in August 2020.
“I can say that along with the team both at Beaphar and Expect we really nailed the project. Open and clear channels of communication were created and we are now live at Expect six months after our first conversation. To handle a project and deliver this within six months is incredible and my thanks goes out to Neil and this team for accepting the challenge and completing it on time. Not bad considering due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, we’ve only seen the warehouse through Microsoft Teams. Well done and I wish Expect Distribution and our partnership all the success for the future.”
Scott Beattie, Managing Director at Fibo, adds, “I am delighted to appoint Expect Distribution to handle Fibo’s warehousing and freight across England and Wales. I have been really impressed with the integration of our business by the Expect team and look forward to working in partnership with Expect as we continue to grow Fibo in the UK.”
