JUBILEE fever has come to a North East warehouse and distribution firm as it celebrates its own silver anniversary.

Nicholson’s Transport is 25 years old this month and to highlight the occasion, it has decked out one if its vehicles in patriotic red, white and blue.

The vehicle will take pride of place in the Nicholson’s 15-strong fleet.

Managing director David Nicholson said: “It’s a summer to be proud to be British and what better way to celebrate than have Union Jack livery on one of our vehicles?

“The Nicholson’s colours have always been red, white and blue and it’s certainly caused a positive reaction amongst staff and customers.”

The business was founded in June 1987 by David Nicholson with just one Ford flat-back lorry delivering timber to builder’s merchants across Teesside.

The Billingham-based business now boasts 32 staff and is a founder member of the nationwide Hazchem and Pallet Networks, delivering goods across the UK and Ireland.

Mr Nicholson added: “I’m very proud to have led the business to its 25th anniversary.

“We have a growing North East-based logistics and warehousing business which is a leader in transporting hazardous and dangerous goods.

“We have a few celebrations lined up over the summer and it’s thanks to our customers, suppliers and staff that we have a thriving business after a quarter of a century.”
