Delivering a better experience.

New Additions to our Team and Fleet

To support our recent growth and to ensure we maintain the customer service levels that our customers expect from us, we have purchased 7 new HGVs and 5 new box vans.

While much of the industry tackles issues such as a lack of drivers and problems with supply, we are painting a very different picture.

The HGVs will allow us to offer greater delivery flexibility to both new and existing customers, while the box vans, which can be driven by any employee with a driving licence, mean we can quickly make emergency deliveries to our customers that need them, as well as deliver along routes unsuitable for larger vehicles.

The HGVS are also fitted with the latest Euro 6 engines, helping us significantly reduce our carbon footprint.

Alongside the investment in our fleet, we have also recruited 7 new drivers to maintain our impressive customer service levels.

Our continued commitment to improving the wellbeing of our people has made Birchalls an attractive place to work, and we are now recruiting in our warehouse and IT departments too.

Some of the incentives we offer our employees are on-site exercise classes and fresh meals made daily by the in-house chef.

Joe Moulton, our marketing manager said,I think Birchall Foodservice is a fantastic place to work, and I doubt there’s anywhere else quite like it. We get free fitness classes, access to a counsellor once a week, free fruit every day, as well as employee discounts and flexible working. The list goes on. I feel very lucky to work where I do, and I don’t see myself working anywhere else, ever.”

This recent investment in our team and fleet follows a period of substantial growth which has been driven by the introduction of our new e-commerce platform; OrderMate

We now have our sights set firmly on the future and are investigating new ways to deliver a better experience to our employees and customers, including offering deliveries 7 days per week.
