Gregory acquires Sussex haulage firm
Devon transport firm Gregory has acquired Sussex-based Philston Haulage for an undisclosed sum.
The combined turnover of the two firms is £125 million and the enlarged business employs 1,300 people at 18 locations.
Philson Haulage, which was founded in 1995, employs 56 people at its base in Chichester.
John Gregory, chief executive of Gregory Distribution, said the acquisition would allow the North Tawton-based firm to strengthen its presence on the south coast.

"Philson's transport activities complement existing Gregory temperature controlled work and therefore both operations should benefit. We are delighted that Phil Dickinson will continue to run the business," he said.
