FHG IPP Logipal moves to new larger HQ to accommodate future growth

Pallet pooling business doubled and still growing

FHG IPP Logipal, the UK & Ireland’s second largest pooling supplier and leading high quality pallet pooling specialist, has moved to new larger premises on the same Meriden Business Park, near Coventry. The move was prompted by a doubling in business size since 2009.

Carl McInerney, commercial director, FHG IPP Logipal UK & Ireland commented: “Our move to new headquarters was essential as we had simply outgrown our old premises. Since 2010, 18 new colleagues have joined growing teams in commercial pallet administration, customer service, logistics planning, asset recovery and pallet quality.

“We continue to grow our business by volume and our new HQ will enable us to better meet our ambitious future growth targets while at the same time developing organisational capability in the areas of people, process and systems to better serve our customers.

“Our ability to grow so quickly has been based on a clear value proposition of delivering high quality pallets using a simple process to service the whole supply chain at a competitive price. Quality, simplicity, service, flexibility and value are hallmarks of our business approach.

“This approach has seen us grow to become the second largest pooling supplier in the UK & Ireland with customers in the FMCG, retail, recycling and electronic sectors.”

At 7,720 sq.ft. the new open plan, first floor offices are over twice the size of the previous ones. The new HQ also features a modern conference facility and two additional meeting rooms, which are all available for customer use. There is also ample visitor and staff parking.

The full address of the new HQ is: Building 2020, Copse Drive, Meriden Business Park, Coventry CV5 9RN. The telephone number – 01676 524000 – remains the same.
