A female logistics expert is using the feminine touch to more than double the turnover of a well-known Wolverhampton company.
Sue Chew, who has a long history of working in the automotive supply chain, has invested a five figure sum to take over RPM Couriers.
Ms Chew has also engineered the firm's relocation to a new facility on D'Urberville Road and a string of new contracts.
She is now turning her attention to investing in a fleet of new vans and taking on five new employees in a bid to take turnover past the £300,000 mark for the first time in the firm's seventeen-year history.
"When I was growing up, I always wanted to eventually be my own boss, but I also knew that I needed to have the right level of experience under my belt and ensure that the time and the opportunity were right," said Ms Chew.
"A couple of months ago, I heard on the grapevine that the directors at RPM were looking to move down south and wanted to sell up. The company possesses a really strong reputation locally and there is significant potential to build on this and start securing clients in other parts of the country - something we have started to do."
The female entrepreneur has already started to make her mark on the business by launching a new website.
By expanding the fleet to eight vehicles of varying sizes, RPM is also looking at tapping into the medical technology sector, sports supplies and even arranging for pets to be picked up from the elderly, taken to the vets and returned home.
"It's all about thinking outside the box," said Ms Chew.
