The Pink Link Ltd is celebrating a 25-year partnership with local business associate Bewleys Tea and Coffee Ltd.
Meltham-based coffee specialist has relied on the Huddersfield based Pink Link Ltd to deliver their products since 1991. After marking its 25th birthday in 2016, The Pink Link Ltd, part of Palletways, Europe’s largest and fastest growing express palletised freight network, wanted to take time to reflect on its relationship with one of its longest standing clients.
Kevin Stowell, operations manager at Bewleys, commented: “As we grow our customer base it’s important to have a reliable pallet distributor who can keep up with our growing demand and support us in our service delivery.”
Bewleys, formerly Bolling Coffee Ltd, were historically a neighbour of The Pink Link Ltd before relocating to new premises to cater for business growth. It was here that marked the start of such a successful and long term relationship.
“Our long standing business relationship with The Pink Link Ltd is based on their understanding of our business needs and those of our customers; this has given them the ability to successfully deliver a great service consistently,” added Kevin.
Paul Ince, sales and commercial director at The Pink Link Ltd, continues: “Being in the service industry ‘people’ are The Pink Link Ltd.’s greatest asset. From internal customer service and operational staff behind the scenes to drivers on the front line, our business prides itself on providing our customers with an unrivalled degree of personalised service. Our long standing relationship with Bewleys is a testament to the hard work of everyone involved in both company.”
Palletways consists of 400 depots across Europe, of which more than 100 are in the UK. The company’s distribution networks are made up of independent transport companies, including The Pink Link, who share each other’s resources to deliver consignments of palletised freight to market with the highest levels of service.
Bewleys Tea and Coffee Ltd has various sites across the UK, Ireland and USA with its manufacturing site located in the heart of Meltham which produces and sells coffee. They also retail coffee machines and offer a full machine maintenance service.
