Hills Group expands in the south

Hills Group will open a new delivery hub in the south west after announcing the acquisition of a new parts delivery hub in Gloucestershire.

The new site will allow Hills and the Green Parts Specialists to despatch freight in bulk to the new facility overnight from 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 and 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.”
