Davies Turner Air Cargo expands in Glasgow to accommodate business growth
Dec 07, 2018: Davies Turner Air Cargo has doubled the size of its branch in Glasgow, to accommodate growth in business.
The air freight subsidiary of the UK’s largest independent freight forwarding company has had a base on the Hillington Park business estate since 2004 and has now moved into a 10,000 sq ft, fully refurbished unit.
The secure, CAA-accredited facility now boasts a team of 19 staff with an extensive range of clients from various industries.
Andrew Christie, director, Davies Turner Air Cargo said: “We have a fleet of vehicles for delivery and collection of International cargo, so easy access to the airport and mainline routes is essential for us and is why we wanted to remain on Hillington Park and continue to grow while based here. We have both new and longstanding clients and our objective is to help them expand while doing so ourselves. Our new base on Montrose Avenue is designed with this goal in mind and we are very excited about the future.”
Grant Edmondson, commercial director at Hillington Park added: “We worked closely with Andrew to refurbish this vacant unit into a modern, fit-for-purpose space for Davies Turner.”
Davies Turner Group chairman, Philip Stephenson adds: “The expansion in Glasgow, follows last year’s doubling in size of our regional distribution centre in Cumbernauld, from where our ocean and overland logistics services for Scottish importers and exporters are managed.
“This latest development is a much-needed extension of our airfreight operations in Scotland and further proof of Davies Turner’s continuing commitment to Scottish exporters and importers.”
In Britain and Ireland, Davies Turner has seven strategically located regional hubs and national logistics centres in Birmingham, Bristol, Dartford, Heathrow, Manchester, and Cumbernauld, as well as Dublin, with another 15 branches supporting the company's nationwide distribution network.
