Palletways has created Palletways Colchester following its acquisition of Systematic Logistics International (SLi) last year.
SLi entered administration on 29 November 2018, with a sale of the business assets to Palletways UK completed the next day. It had been part of the network for 24 years. All staff continued their roles and duties after transferring to Palletways.
Palletways Colchester covers the IP, CO and CM postcode areas for the network.
Palletways UK MD Rob Gittins said: “The acquisition safeguarded jobs and made sure the company can carry on serving customers, across the East of England, reliably.
“We’ve worked closely with staff through this period of major change to support the business. It’s now on solid foundations and we hope it’ll go from strength to strength.”
