Jobs boost as borough company secures £5m deal

A CORRINGHAM-based company has secured a deal expected to be worth £5 million over the next five years that will also create up to ten jobs in the area.

Apex Logistics Solutions, based in Grover Walk, has signed a deal with Archis Scaffolding to manage the company’s supply chain, including the storage and distribution of scaffolding equipment.

“We are delighted to begin our partnership with Archis Scaffolding,” says David Perry, Managing Director of Apex Logistics Solutions. “We are looking to work with clients that are open to innovation, and Archis Scaffolding is a perfect match. They, like us, have a lot of drive to disrupt their industry, and we can’t wait to work with that energy”.

“We are thrilled to welcome Apex Logistics on board as a critical supplier to our business,” says Matthew Warner, CEO of Archis Scaffolding Solutions.

“We needed a supplier with the technical expertise to manage the flow of materials across our supply chain. We have complex requirements, such as the need to manage visually identical hired and purchased materials often travelling on the same vehicle; recovery and refurbishment of damaged equipment; and the stock control of hundreds of thousands of articles between dozens of sites.

“We are confident that Apex Logistics understands our strategic vision and can deliver savings across our business. We look forward to what we expect to be a long and mutually beneficial partnership.”
