A Caldicot-based logistics company has received grant support to create jobs and expand its facilities.
Hicks Logistics, a family-owned and run business specialising in warehousing, distribution and freight transport, was established in 1978 and now operates from a complex in Caldicot, employing 90 people.
After receiving advice from Business Wales, the company was able to secure a grant of £7,500 to help towards the purchase and installation of commercial racking to enhance its storage facilities. It also allowed it to create four new jobs.
Founder Terry Hicks said: “The grant has been instrumental in the expansion of our storage facilities. Without this support, it would have been very difficult for us to purchase and install the racks to meet the growing demands of our customers’ storage requirements.”
Successfully operating since 1978, Hicks Logistics is one of Wales’ largest logistics companies. Based in a state of the art complex which was built in 2008, Hicks Logistics run a varied fleet of over 60 vehicles nationwide. We are a family owned and run company that celebrated 35 years of trading in 2013.
Hicks Logistics operate with a wide range of vehicles starting from 7.5 tonne rigids up to 44 tonne artic vehicles. We can deliver anything from a single pallet right up to full loads and offer competitive rates on next day delivery services. We also operate a fleet of low loader trailers and specialise in the delivery of plant machinery and powered access equipment.
