We are delighted to announce that from 7th August 2015, Friars Pride has purchased the business and assets of Plymouth Agencies.
This is an important mile stone for Friars Pride and sees Plymouth as our 6th depot, securing our delivery routes into the South West. Joining our 5 other depots; Peterborough, Nottingham, Norwich, Basildon and Poole, the addition of our Plymouth depot grows our geographical reach to an area that stretches from the Midlands, South Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, the East of England, London, the South, the South East and the South West. The move also strengthens the delivery area of The Q Partnership Ltd, with the ability to deliver from Lands End to John O’Groats.
The Plymouth depot will now see a multi-million pound investment in infrastructure, including a new fleet for delivery before the end of the year and the installation of freezers to enable the introduction of frozen goods.
We are delighted that both Yvonne and Leann Furzeland are remaining with the business joining Friars Pride along with the rest of the team at Plymouth. Additionally Steve and Danielle Furzeland are also working with us until the end of November.
For customers of Plymouth Agencies, all the familiar contact people and their contact details remain unchanged. We intend to continue to service customer requirements exactly as before.
