A TRANSPORT company is gearing up for a prosperous year.
Nicholson’s Transport recruited an extra six new drivers and three office staff last year. The Billingham-based business expects this to be one of the busiest years in its 28-year history.
Managing director David Nicholson said: “The last few years have been difficult but things are beginning to really improve now and fuel prices are falling which is great for everyone. Confidence is booming and we have experienced a significant upturn in business, particularly in Hiab crane hire as the construction sector recovers.”
David Nicholson set up his business in 1987 with just himself and a truck but now employs more than 50 people with a fleet of 25 vehicles. He said the company was “still here five years after an awful recession hit and are stronger without a doubt. We are now approaching 30 years in business and we believe the best years are ahead of us.”
