"The south of England has a lot of opportunities and we were looking for a location to make the most of this."
Liverpool-based logistics firm Sovereign Transport Services has chosen Swindon as its first location for expansion.
It is trading from the Groundwell Industrial Estate, having taken over the Swindon Palletways business. The firm has recruited 25 employees, including those from the former depot, and plans to triple its workforce in the next three years.
Attracted to Swindon thanks to its position on the M4 corridor, MD Steve Radcliffe turned to businessman Martin Tedham of Wasdell for advice thanks to the success Martin's businesses have had since relocating to the town.
Steve explained: "The south of England has a lot of opportunities and we were looking for a location to make the most of this."
Martin Tedham, Chief Executive of Wasdell, added: "Swindon was an obvious choice. I'm sure they will bring a lot of growth and opportunities."
Steve started Sovereign with one vehicle in Kirkby in 1999.
