Three years in Pall-Ex Group
Northampton-based pallet network, Fortec Distribution, is celebrating its three-year milestone as a wholly owned subsidiary of Pall-Ex Group.
Fortec has benefitted from the support of Pall-Ex Group, which has allowed it to retain the agility of a smaller network while gaining the resources of a major global player, bringing in a profit of GBP 286,000 in the year to July 2023.
One of the biggest changes has been the introduction of a shareholder model. Fortec Distribution now has over 60 members operating in the UK. Access to Pall-Ex Group’s international network also enables full European coverage.
Investments into Fortec’s hub facility have brought major improvements for the company’s operations, with a fleet of 36 new forklift trucks recently put into service. Further upgrades will see Fortec’s hub capacity increase by an additional 2,000 pallets per night. (mk)
