S J Bargh collects four million liters of milk daily for clients including Arla Foods, Joseph Heler, and Müller Milk and Ingredients.
The acquisition of Bassetts means the addition of a location at an 11-acre site with 100 employees near Stoke-on-Trent.
This site is close to existing and new S J Bargh sites, with links to the M6 and A50. The acquisition will increase the group’s general haulage and warehousing operations and add new driver and related training services.
Bassetts will continue as a standalone brand, while S J Bargh will retain its primary focus on specialised logistics, including milk collection and distribution.
Anthony Finlayson-Green, S J Bargh Group managing director, said, “The customers of both companies will benefit as together we offer greater scale with a larger team, more vehicles and warehousing, and a host of complementary services.”
The S J Bargh Group now comprises more than 500 employees across four sites in the North West and Midlands with a fleet of more than 500 vehicles and assets, along with 120,000 square feet of warehousing.
