With discrete contracts and long-standing customers, news from Jack Richards & Son can seem a little slow by comparison with some of the ‘noisier’ companies in our industry. Traditionally, we don’t like to shout about our own achievements, preferring to keep our successes between ourselves and the customers who inspire us to achieve them. However, recent points of note are shown below for the sake of general information:

Pallet Services On The Up

Increasing volumes of palletised freight business have seen Jack Richards & Son appoint Dominic Purslow as Depot Principal for its specialist Pallet Division in Fakenham, Norfolk. The Division collects and delivers palletised freight across the NR postcode area, as part of its founder member role within the wider Palletways network across the UK and Europe.

Dominic Purslow joined the company in 2005, having previously been working as its Operations Manager. Over the last three years he has helped oversee the restructure of the Pallet Division, introducing a number of fresh initiatives based on advanced new IT systems. These have enabled the business to expand significantly and it now offers a multiple service portfolio that handles palletised freight across the UK and Europe, and now includes storage and bespoke logistics solutions.

Commenting on his appointment, Peter Brown, Jack Richards Managing Director, said, “It is a real pleasure to be able to hand over the management reins for this part of the business to a capable and dedicated manager like Dominic. Our pallet services, from a single one-off quarter pallet to regular volume consignments, have grown in recent years to form an important part of our strategy for the future development of the Jack Richards operations.”
