History

Established in January 1995 as a Husband and wife partnership, Whitefield distribution started with just one vehicle. After six months it had expanded to four vehicles gaining a reputation of reliability with a friendly approach to its customers. In September 1999 the company was incorporated and became a limited company with the Head office based in Heywood Lancashire.

The company started by offering Next Day or Same Day delivery options. Whitefield Distribution Ltd and their staff pride themselves on being able to handle with care all types of items ranging from delicate filtration equipment for hospital operating theatres to large awkward sign boards, all items are handle with the same care.

The company then expanded into the Home Delivery Service and then we soon gained a reputation for delivering Medical and associated products to patients in their own homes a reputation that has only got better and better over the last 10 years.

During 2005 due to requests from our largest client we opened a Depot in Essex to service new and exciting business in London. Business increased based on reputation as a reliable delivery operation and another depot was required to service Surrey, Sussex, Kent and the South East Coast and so our Depot in Redhill surrey was opened. Eighteen months later due to logistical reasons the two depots we amalgamated to Paddock Wood Kent operating with over 30 vehicles and 45 staff.

In 2008 Whitefield Distribution Ltd was invited by a valued customer Paul Hartmann Ltd, to move its Heywood Operation into their premises. The decision to do so gave enormous advantages to both parties with increased communication and service levels.

During early 2010 it was decided to invest in a tracking system for our delivery vehicles that could incorporate a routing facility that would provide information on when where and how a delivery was made. This system was trailed with TomTom Work and was very successful. TomTom work was when fitted to all our vehicles by our own in-house fitter. In late 2010 in conjunction with our TomTom Work project Whitefield Distribution Ltd are proud to announce the launch of www.whitefielddistribution.co.uk. This will give new and existing clients the facility of consignment tracking and online ordering for collections.

During the last few years of unforeseen weather conditions it has been decided to provide each one of our depots with a 4 wheel drive vehicle to aid recovery of stranded delivery vehicles and if necessary deliver consignments urgently required to locations that it would be impossible for a normal vehicle to achieve.
