Following the Easter break, LPR UK, part of Europe’s leading pallet pooling specialist, looks back on a busy and successful quarter one. Throughout the first three months of the year, the business has grown its pallet movements by 7% compared to the same period last year, and has announced a number of contract wins, new appointments and industry awards.
Alongside its ongoing work with some of the world’s leading FMCG blue chip businesses, including Nestlé, Kellogg’s and Carlsberg, LPR UK has also secured a raft of new business wins. These include contracts with FMCG specialists Dale Farm, Kanes Foods and Shepley Springs, as well as new agreements with technology specialist Exertis and paper giant EuroVast.
To complement their continued growth, LPR UK recently invested in a brand new business contracts director, Stephen Ambroziak. With more than 30 years’ experience in the logistics service sector, Ambroziak will assume the specially created role to help support LPR’s existing business development team and further boost its service offering.
Fresh from record-breaking success in 2016, LPR has continued to break new ground in the first quarter of this year. In February, the business announced it had been awarded ‘AdvancedGold’ status by EcoVadis. The accolade recognises LPR’s ongoing investment in its CSR practices, most notably a commitment to sustainability and ongoing investment in people and processes.
Adrian Fleming, pictured, regional director of LPR UK and Ireland, said: “One of our key objectives at the end of last year was to continue building on our successful growth platform. Looking at what we’ve achieved since January, we’re on track to break further records. It’s been great to see the team secure so many new contract wins, alongside bolstering relationships with our existing clients, and I hope to see that continue across Q2. Elsewhere, it’s been great to welcome some new faces to LPR – as well as celebrating the long-service achieved by a number of the team.
“With summer just around the corner, we’re gearing up for a very busy few months and I hope to be able to look back on the next quarter with the same degree of pride and expectation as I have on this one.”
