t forrest increase their fleet
This year sees the addition of a new articulated lorry to our expanding fleet.
It has been a challenging year for everyone. The pandemic has brought many changes to people's lives. As people spend more time at home. Pet ownership has increased dramatically.
35% of young adults (age 24-35) have already embarked on lives as new pet owners.
2.1m people collected a new pet in lockdown.
1.8m are planning to add a pet to their household.
This huge increase has seen an increase in demand for our products. As Covid hit the UK government deemed us as manufacturers of the pet industry, as an essential service. Therefore, in response to growing demand and an increase in sales. We have expanded our fleet to include a new 40ft state-of-the-art articulated lorry and 40ft trailer unit.
Daniel Wallbank our Head of Business Development told the press:
"We are over the moon with our new addition, it means we can increase capacity and streamline our operations effectively."
The new articulated lorry showcases our new branding. The eye-catching design is by Tina and Shaun’s daughter Charlotte Wallbank, T Forrest’s graphic designer. Charlotte tells us:
"The new vehicle incorporates our new branding which we are extremely proud of. The design reflects our traditional values, however with a modern twist"
The new vehicle will be hitting the UK roads from June 2021. Delivering our products to our network of stockists.
Katrina our Financial Director tells us:
"Charlotte has worked so hard on the design and has done such an amazing job, it’s great to see it out on the roads."
