FHG IPP Logipal, the UK & Ireland’s second largest pooling supplier and leading high quality pallet pooling specialist, last year achieved its ninth successive year of double-digit growth since its foundation in 2005.
Carl McInerney, country director, FHG IPP Logipal UK & Ireland commented: "Although 2013 was another challenging year, we successfully attained our ambitious growth targets. Double-digit volume growth was sustained for a ninth consecutive year through winning new business on a weekly basis across a broad range of sectors.
"Our sustained growth has been achieved on the basis of a clear value proposition of delivering high quality pallets using a simple process to service the whole supply chain at a competitive price. Quality, simplicity, service, flexibility and value are hallmarks of our business approach.
"Key highlights of the year included a move to new larger premises on the same Meriden Business Park, near Coventry, prompted by a doubling in business size since 2009 and the launch of a new range of reusable box solutions – the FHG Bulk Box, FHG High Protection Box plus handling and packaging accessories.
"During the year, we strengthened our asset and quality management teams, upgraded associated control processes in line with growth, continued our new depot opening programme to be close to our customers and extended our Trade Direct offer to more customers. And for the first time, we began working directly with retailers to service their own production flows.
"As a group, greater emphasis was placed on the electronic waste and recycling pooling market. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) business unit specialises in providing environmentally and cost efficient solutions and pools its reusable bulk boxes and high protection boxes for handling large flows of e-waste in a range of European countries including the UK, where we now have a specialist primary point of contact."
