Hills Group continues green parts expansion
17th February 2022Tweet
Hills Group has expanded into the south-west with the acquisition of a new parts delivery hub in Gloucestershire.
The move, one year on since its expansion into Scotland, will allow Hills and the Green Parts Specialists to despatch freight in bulk to the new facility overnight from its headquarters in Skelmersdale, ready for delivery across the south of the UK the very next day.
Joe March, Head of Commercial at Hills said, “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 as well as 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.
Jason added, “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.”
The new site is located near the Stroudwater interchange of the M5 just north of the M4 corridor.Tweet
