Ital is 15 in August

[ August 12, 2015   //   ]

European road freight specialists, Ital Logistics is celebrating its 15th anniversary in August. The company, initially specialising in the Italian groupage market, now operates extensive services throughout Italy, Spain, Portugal and Greece, loading over 40 export and import trailer every week. Ital’s niche area is dangerous goods, with services supported by competitors.
Turnover has grown from £6.3m three years ago to and expected £10m this year.
Ital relocated to new purpose-built premises in Heywood, north Manchester in December 2014, having completely outgrown its shared facility in Sharston. Occupying 1.5 acres, and comprising 16,000ft² warehousing and a yard area of 22,000ft² with separate ingress and egress, the £0.6 million development allows multiple vehicles on-site and in situ ready for loading and unloading at any one time. There is 24/7 manned security for the whole business park, including automatic number plate recognition, CCTV, access and intruder systems.
Managing director Phil Denton (pictured) said the move “will provide us with a platform to enable further growth as we enter the next chapter of the company’s journey. It has been an exciting year, and with many new irons in the fire, we are confident that our presence within our core markets and the chemical sector will continue to grow.”
