One year after expanding into Scotland the Hills Group continue to increase their strategic coverage. This time in the South West with the acquisition of a new parts delivery hub in Gloucestershire.
Located near the Stroudwater interchange of the M5 just north of the M4 corridor, the new site will allow Hills and the Green Parts Specialists to serve its customers with greater efficiency. Despatching freight in bulk to the new facility overnight from their headquarters in Skelmersdale, ready for delivery across the south of the UK the very next day.
Joe March, Head of Commercial at Hills comments:
“In a world where organisations are constantly working to reduce their carbon footprint, we recognise our responsibility to do the same by reducing our Co2 output from transport emissions. The recycling industry is experiencing continued growth as the appetite for Green Parts continues to increase across the insurance repair industry, resulting in a significant increase to our fleet of delivery vehicles.
By eliminating unnecessary inefficiency and fuel consumption we can shorten our distribution routes and improve and expand our next day delivery service. The creation of this new hub, combined with our established locations are a vital strategic step in our growth plans.”
Regional Manager, Jason Bishop, will head up the new site and be responsible for the day-to-day operation. Formerly of FAB and SYNETIQ, Jason has a proven track record of operational site management and the skillset to maintain the established reputation of Hills as an industry leader of Green Parts Services. He adds:
“The significant investment into our central warehousing operation has enabled Hills and The Green Parts Specialists to hold the largest inventory of relevant quality assured parts in the UK. Our centralised dismantling operation, combined with our distribution hubs throughout the UK, improves the speed and efficiency of our offering, providing repairers with what they need; Quality assured parts, delivered the next day in the condition that was promised.”
