South-West based employment business, Backline Logistic Support Services Ltd, has relocated one of its operation to larger premises in Winchester, at Unit 2 Scylla Industrial Estate.
Backline currently operates from six sites in Exeter, Avonmouth, Bridgwater, Plymouth, Winchester and Yeovil and operates an ‘outbase’ facility that provides customers with secure parking and cross-docking capability. Customers use this to optimise driver distance from delivery points in the region.
“Winchester is a key strategic location for us,” said Backline Chief Operations Officer Julian White. “In order to expand our capabilities and support our customers further in the region we have moved to larger premises. The new offices are situated in a central industrial location and in addition to providing more space, will provide a dedicated recruitment function and training room facility.”
“As an integral part of the SWS Group, Backline continues to build on its excellent reputation and customer-focused services in the region. The relocation of its operations to larger premises in Winchester will strengthen the company’s presence in the area and ensure the full range of services continues to be offered to existing and new clients,” said SWS Group director Neil Yorke.
Backline, which was acquired by Midlands-based SWS Group in 2016, is a specialist employment business, supplying driving and industrial staff to the distribution, transport and industrial sectors. The company also supplies tradespeople and specialist operators along with running accredited training for drivers and materials handling operators.
