Yorkshire-based Y Pellets has made further investment in its logistics fleet following ongoing growth and expansion of its biomass distribution business.
Delivering to homes and businesses nationwide, the Goole-based company has invested in additional new, legal-for-trade delivery vehicles in order to maintain growing sales of biomass wood pellets in across the country
A new 8-wheeled truck has been added to the existing fleet this week to help meet the continued demand for pellets, and there are more planned in the coming months. The investment also comes in advance of the construction of a new multi-million pound, six acre, advanced manufacturing wood refinery plant at Goole 36 industrial zone in East Yorkshire.
Y Pellets’ Managing Director , Neil Holland, commented, “I’m delighted to say that our core offering of quality pellets at a fair price backed by great customer service continues to enable us to grow organically. We’ve gone through our second winter as a company with volumes increasing by 194% year on year, making us the fastest growing pellet distribution business in the UK. We continue to have ambitious plans, so our new vehicles will expand our distribution reach further, especially to more remote or rural areas, and provide home and business customers with a highly efficient service. We are starting preparations for our busiest time of year so it was an ideal time to increase the fleet, invest in our future growth and ensure that customers continue to receive first class deliveries.
“As with all our existing vehicles, the new trucks have been customised to feature state-of-the-art electronic weighing systems and advanced onboard technology meaning that customers get the exact amount that they order and pay for. Customer feedback on being able to buy pellets manufactured in Yorkshire has been extremely positive and we will have news very soon on the new wood refinery being built in Goole”
Y Pellets is fast becoming one of the UK’s leading wood pellet supply companies and one of the best within the biomass energy sector both in the UK and Europe. Its sister company, Y Pellets in Austria is currently putting the finishing touches to a third wood refinery which will go live in Q4 2019.
