John Pearce Glynneath says 15 years with TPN has transformed its business
Neath-based haulier John Pearce Glynneath reflected on its 15 transformative years with TPN as the company reviewed its strategy in the light of 46 years of trading.
The John Pearce operation has progressed from 20 pallets a week when it joined TPN in 2004, to over 1,000, and been listed as one of the fastest growing businesses in Wales. It started as a general haulier in 1973 and grew organically through the decades which followed. TPN was a natural fit for the evolving business says MD Clive Davies.
“We’ve always been committed to excellent customer service, from the very start,” he says, “so TPN’s ethos fit ours exactly. And that quality shows, both in existing customers who now use the TPN service as well, and in customers who joined us for palletised freight but have gone on to use our full range of haulage services.”
The company now boasts a comprehensive operation, with purpose built facilities, including a workshop and a range of materials handling equipment, including truck mounted forklifts. As a FORS Bronze member, all of its HGVs are equipped with forward, side and rear-view cameras and full tracking.
“TPN has undoubtedly helped us to develop into the significant employer we are today,” says Clive. “We play a very active part in our community, supporting local sports clubs and individuals. And we make a twice-yearly health check available to all employees. Some of our team have been with us for thirty years.”
