It’s been a busy few months at Pontypool’s award winning Freight Logistics Solutions, after its equity investment from Development Banc Wales in September 2021, the management team focused on making sure they have been investing this injection wisely, and as with any service based company that means enhancing team numbers to support strategic growth.
Ieuan Rosser CEO said ‘We have been really busy over the past 4 months, Business has grown well, despite rising costs, the national driver shortage and huge supply chain issues FLS really came into its own with more and more customers turning to FLS’ huge carrier resource, buying power, and flexible quick response solutions team to successfully resolve often very difficult transport and customs situations. We were super happy about again being listed in the Wales Fast Growth 50 for the 3rd time, winning a continuous growth award, coupled with our new partners Development Banc Wales coming into the business it was the support and confidence we needed to push forward with our growth plans into 2022 and that of course means the acquisition of experienced and talented people.’
