New year, new contracts for Enderby Haulier

Enderby based haulage firm, Brysons Haulage – which employs 13 staff and operates 11 trucks – says it is on course for a great year after winning three major contracts.

The business is planning to create jobs and is looking for a new warehouse because of increased demand.

A report in the Leicester Mercury states that the company has secured contracts to supply shop fixtures to retailers and says the new work will mean a double-digit increase in turnover.

The upturn comes after a difficult period for the business, says the report, describing how the firm  lost a big customer after 18 years and has battled to bring in new work.

Managing director Dean Watson said:

“After a couple of tough years we have turned it around and are looking good. We could be looking at creating new jobs in March.

“I’m quite positive about the first quarter and hopefully it will be good for the rest of the year.”

Mr Watson said the firm, whose main storage depot is in Quarry Lane, Enderby, had been forced to use sub-contractors in Whetstone and Coalville to provide additional space.

As a result, Mr Watson told the Mercury he is seeking other premises in Leicestershire.

“We have been looking for a 25,000sq ft warehouse,” he said. “We want it for storage because of the volumes we have got and are looking at a number of options. It will be in Leicestershire.”
