Farrall’s Transport, the Cheshire based logistics service provider, has announced changes to the company’s senior management team. The move follows a sustained period of exponential growth within the business that has resulted in the procurement of additional facilities to the company’s portfolio, the most recent being a £3.5m investment in a new warehousing facility at Deeside.
With immediate effect Mike Farrall will take on the role of Chairman and Jim Perry has been appointed to the position of Managing Director of Farrall’s Transport.
“Jim brings a wealth of logistics industry experience to the business and aligned with my experience, industry knowledge and the existing strong team at Farrall’s, we will be well placed to support, develop and grow our existing valued client base along with new business integration prospects,” says Mike Farrall, Chairman of Farrall’s Transport.
He continues: “With best in class systems, superior processes and focused people behind us we approach the 60th anniversary of our business confident in the knowledge we can continue to provide market leading logistics services at a competitive price, in what is an economically challenging market place. With a solid financial structure, we are well positioned to continue our growth through organic development of the business aligned with potential acquisition opportunities.”
