When Messrs Hyde and Strachan couldn’t find a modern fulfilment solution for the eCommerce business they ran, they decided to build their own.
We propelled logistics into the 21st century with agile best practice and cloud-based technology. As a result, we grew 300% year-on-year.
In 2014, we became one of the first fulfilment centres in the world to be certified by the Soil Association. It enables us to handle a wide variety of organic products.
Two years later, we moved our headquarters from Cambridge to a larger fulfilment centre in Northampton. We also opened our first US location in Columbus, Ohio.
We’re listed on a prestigious league table of Britain’s fastest-growing private companies (#83). This achievement follows a ranking among the European Inc. 5,000 in 2017.
We were then listed on the FT1000 – the Financial Times’ list of Europe’s fastest-growing companies – for the second year running, thanks to consistent revenue and team growth.
Shortly after our tenth birthday, we received our first outside investment – £11 million from private equity firm LDC, part of Lloyds Banking Group.
Having grown export sales 1,700% over five years, we won a second Queen’s Award for Enterprise – this time for International Trade, following a first for Innovation in 2016.
Securing our second Sunday Times Fast Track 100 ranking is a testament to our already-rapid growth trajectory. 2020’s special edition specifically highlights the important contribution that private companies have made to the UK during the Covid-19 pandemic.
We up-sticks and move to our brand new fulfilment centre which has an operational space six times the size of our previous site on Brackmills, Northampton. A significant moment in unlocking the next phase of our growth.
