LPR, a division of Euro Pool Group, has predicted that 2016 will be a year of further growth after celebrating a successful start to the year. The record-breaking period comes as the company delivered more than 73 million pallets across Europe in 2015, resulting in LPR UK achieving its highest ever volume of collections in a single month in January 2016.
The growth follows a successful 2015 for LPR, including winning new contracts with high profile blue chip FMCG manufacturers including Nestlé and Kellogg’s, plus a series of contract extensions.
This positive start to 2016 places the logistics specialist in a strong position to continue its upward trajectory, predicts Adrian Fleming, managing director at LPR UK.
Fleming said: “We’ve set ambitious targets for growth in 2016, and we are confident that we will sustain these levels over the next 12 months and beyond.
“Since LPR launched in the UK in 2003, we have grown steadily and strongly, and there is still potential for us to advance further in the pallet pooling sector. For that reason, we’ve not been shy about putting together a programme of growth that will challenge us during 2016, but it’s one that the entire company is relishing.”
Recent expansion has seen the company move its UK and Ireland headquarters to a new base in Studley, Warwickshire, and also open two new bases in Dublin and Galway. Its pro-active programme of growth has also seen LPR make strategic new appointments to boost its UK and Ireland performance. The company now has more than 40 personnel in the UK and Ireland.
