CFT Services Ltd Open New Depot

CFT Services Ltd, with depots in Wednesbury and Heywood, are thrilled to announce this week the opening of a new depot and storage facility on Potters Lane, Wednesbury, creating local employment and better flexibility for the business.

CFT Services Ltd opened their Wednesbury depot in 2007 with one employee and 5000 square feet of storage; today the company employs 33 people and has in excess of 50,000 square feet of storage! All this during the toughest recession in recent memory, they must be doing something right.

19th June 2012, the company welcomed Cllr Keith Davies, Mayor of Sandwell Council to officially open their new premises. CFT Services is expanding its’ Wednesbury operation with the addition of a new site on Potters Lane, just around the corner from the existing depot. The new site will allow the company to expand its’ pallet distribution and to build upon its’ position as the number one pallet input company for Pallet-Track Ltd; the nationwide pallet network of which CFT is a shareholder member; based in Bilston, Wolverhampton.

‘We are very focussed on customer service, just being competitive isn’t enough in 2012’ said Sales Director John Wild; ‘as a company we have embraced the Black Country’s work ethic and people skills; all our depot staff are local people who have bought into our company ethos to care for the customer. As we constantly promote from within we like to think we can provide a workplace where employees can learn new skills and see a career progression. I am sure that our customers appreciate a service-driven approach as well as a friendly voice on the ‘phone.’

CFT Services offer a one-stop shop for nationwide pallet distribution and storage. John continued: ‘Wednesbury is a key location for serving the UK as it very central with great road links. It has complimented our Heywood depot and allowed us to grow our vehicle fleet and customer base accordingly. We have also managed to build key partnerships with like-minded companies in the south of England and Scotland which, alongside the Pallet Track network, has given us improved service levels to the benefit of our customers.’

John concluded: ‘The new depot on Potters Lane will allow us the extra space we need to build on the success of our pallet distribution service. It will also provide more career opportunities for local people keen to join the logistics industry. We are extremely honoured to have the Mayor of Sandwell, Cllr Keith Davies to officially open the new depot. We are also rightly proud of our Wednesbury depot and our staff; here’s to another exciting 5 years!’
