UK-wide trailer repair and maintenance specialist Bullwell Trailer Solutions Ltd, has moved to new headquarters in Lichfield.
The independently-owned company, which employs 81 people, has relocated from Tamworth following a sustained period of growth and expansion. The company has seen its turnover increase from £3.5 million in 2007 to a projected £5.5million by its November year end.
The company acquired its new two acre premises in Streethay, Lichfield for £615,000 and a further £50,000 has already been invested in two specially commissioned double-decker repair and maintenance pits for vehicle maintenance.
The company currently maintains some 5,000 trailers across the UK and Ireland and the company is predicting an increase to 2,000 vehicles on contract by the end of 2011. In order to service this level of growth, Bullwell predicts its team could grow by as much as 25 per cent to reach 100 office-based staff and mobile engineers by the end of 2011.
Gary Bulley, managing director for Bullwell Trailer Solutions, said: “The purchase of our new premises in Lichfield follows a sustained period of phenomenal growth due to continued rising demand for our services from clients across the UK. The majority of our work entails on-site servicing and trailer repairs and, having commissioned and developed our own Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) technology which enables our on-site engineers to electronically file their work with our central control room, we have significantly improved both our efficiency and client experience.”
