Multi-million pound investment completed at logistics business

TEPS, a Hull-based commercial haulage, storage, and distribution company, has launched a new head office and also increased its warehouse capacity.

The third third generation family business, part of sixth-generation company John Good Group, says the improvements have amplified its advanced logistics and inventory management systems, significantly enhancing the company’s operational efficiency and capacity.

Its new 25,000 sq ft warehouse is capable of housing 5,000 pallets, meaning TEPS has boosted its capacity to nearly 200,000 sq ft.

Managing director, Paul Fordon, said: “Our new warehouse and office space marks a significant milestone for us.

“Our team are thriving in their new home, and this is just the beginning of scaling our operations into our new warehouse facility where we will showcase our commitment to operational excellence.

“This next step is a testament to our third generation family business. The project team, led by Havercroft, have done an incredible job.”

Adam Walsh, CEO of John Good Group, added: “I’m pleased for Paul and the team that the project has been completed and we’re now back to being fully operational.

“Projects like this always come with challenges, both in terms of the infrastructure build itself, but also in keeping a safe and productive business running at the same time. I’m pleased to say the team at TEPS achieved both.

“I’d like to extend my thanks to Havercroft for the way they partnered with us to turn our ambitions for the site into reality.

“It’s been a big investment by the John Good Group, and we’re really pleased with the outcome. Now the real work starts as we make the most of our new facilities for our customers and employees.

“With Paul and his team very focused on efficiency and service, we’ve got a great platform for growth with our customers.”

TEPS was founded by Alan Fordon and a group of Yorkshire hauliers. In recognition of the 68-year commitment the Fordon family has brought to the region, the John Good Group has named the new headquarters “Fordon House”.
