(PRWEB UK) 26 August 2012
Smartlift has been based at Kings Lynn since the company was started by founder and managing director Trevor Bland and since those early days, has become one of the UK’s leading suppliers of bulk bags to a diverse range of sectors including the construction, food and chemical industries. But now, they’re moving on for all the right reasons.
“We feel fortunate to have been based in one of the UK’s most beautiful counties,” says Trevor Bland. “Our company has achieved steady year on year growth and our team has consistently expanded in number. The King’s Lynn premises have proved a solid foundation from which to build our service into the sophisticated, national operation it is today. But now, we need we need more space than ever before. And we’re pleased to report that we’ve found just the place, happily close by in yet another lovely county, Cambridgeshire.”
Trevor Bland started Smartlift in July 2005 and from a standing start, achieved a turnover of £2.5 million per annum within the company’s first 6 years. “As we have expanded, our Kings Lynn premises have seen us go through many changes, advancing and refining our service,” says Trevor.
Recent triumphs include the securing of key contracts that have enabled Smartlift to move forward into UN Approved FIBC’s and Conductive Bags. Furthermore, their portfolio of Cardboard and Polythene clients has risen exponentially.
“Thanks to the support of our many clients, we’re literally bursting at the seams, so we’re delighted to report that, from 1st August 2012, Smartlift Packaging will be headquartered in magnificent new premises in Wisbech,” Trevor enthuses.
The capacious, well appointed buildings that will shortly accommodate Smartlift are physically bigger than their current offices, with much more space for their current team and importantly, ample room for all the new staff members they expect to need soon.
“In fact, we believe it’s a measure of the sheer quality of our new premises and the extremely positive relationship we have with our workforce that every member of our current head office team is making the move with us to Wisbech,” Trevor adds.
The state of the art facilities in Smartlift’s new headquarters Wisbech have been specifically adapted to suit the specialised needs of the business. Storage space is plentiful and there’s a fast, easily accessed road network in close proximity, making the new centre of operations easy to get to for everyone; the Smartlift team, suppliers and customers.
“This move will be enable us to go on developing and improving our service, becoming the perfect hub from which to co-ordinate our already vast amount of warehousing space, which is spread among our four major distribution sites across the country, says Trevor. “We’ll be equipped to store and turnaround even larger volumes than we already achieve, in an even better position to provide the fast, efficient system through which we can guarantee 2-3 day delivery from stock. In short, our business and the continuity of supply we offer our clients - will be well and truly future–proofed.”
“So, we’d like to say goodbye Norfolk and a big thank you for playing such a vital part in the success of our business. And hello to Cambridgeshire, with a move that heralds an exciting new era for Smartlift Packaging.”
