Suttons Tankers See Signficant Growth In Industrial Powders Sector

The multi-sector logistics provider has won and retained a combined total of over £10m worth of bulk powders business over the last 12 months.

One of the most significant wins in this sector is the Alpek Polyester business operating out of its Stockton depot, loading PET from Wilton and delivering product across the UK. This product is business critical and is widely used in the FMCG industry for beverage bottles and food containers.

Suttons Tankers have also renewed the INEOS PVC contract for a further 3 years and have subsequently won a new contract with INEOS Olefins and Polymers, strengthening its longstanding partnership with the INEOS brand. The Sabic contract was also renewed for a further 2 years.

The procurement of a new site in Featherstone has been material to the recent wins, enabling Suttons

to offer a trunking operation which adds value by bringing efficiencies to its customers.

The introduction of the Featherstone depot is just the beginning of Suttons’ plans to expand its footprint in the UK to facilitate further growth in the powders sector.

Of course, none of this would be possible without an investment in new fleet. Suttons have invested in

13 new powder tractors and 27 new powder tanks, with a total capital investment of £4m.

To continue the growth in this area, Suttons Tankers have appointed Stephen Cooper to the position of Commercial Manager for Powders. Stephen has over 35 years’ sector experience in various roles from driving to management.

Michael Cundy, Managing Director of Suttons Tankers, commented on the recent growth: “I am delighted that we are emerging into a new, growing sector.

“The recent wins, supported by our appointment of Stephen Cooper to head up the sector, demonstrates our commitment to making further advancements, and providing new and existing customers with bespoke solutions and outstanding levels of service.”
