County Durham logistics firm creates jobs following six-figure turnover growth
A North East logistics company is set to expand its workforce following a turnover growth during 2020.
Stiller Warehousing and Distribution, based on Aycliffe Business Park in Newton Aycliffe, has announced plans to create 25 new jobs to meet growing demand.
The firm, which specialises in logistics for a range of sectors, saw its 2020 sales grow to £16.1m - up from £15.2m in 2019.
The raft of new roles, which will include HGV drivers, forklift drivers, administrative roles in transport operations and customer service representatives, will increase the firm’s staff numbers to 180.
Stiller managing director, Matthew Stiller, commented: “Our increase in sales is down to the two additional warehouses and an upturn in our transport business.
“We have taken on new work for ecommerce packaging suppliers and additional transport business for clients that e-retail bulky products that require a full UK delivery service.
“We’re forecasting the full-year effect of that increased activity to be £16.5m for 2021.”
“This latest recruitment campaign will help us to not only maintain our service standards but also to further improve on them. It’s a somewhat challenging environment to be recruiting in at the moment, but it’s very positive that we’re increasing the size of our team and we expect to see further growth in 2021.”
