Kinaxia Logistics have announced that they have acquired AJ Maiden & Son Limited (aka Maiden’s of Telford), based at Telford, Shropshire. Other companies within Kinaxia Logistics include Bay Freight Limited, William Kirk Limited, NC Cammack & Sons Limited, Foulger Transport Limited, Lambert Brothers Haulage Limited and Panic Transport (Contracts) Limited.
Maiden’s of Telford, based in Telford, Shropshire, is the seventh acquisition for Kinaxia Logistics. Its central location both increases and strengthens Kinaxia’s coverage of the Midlands and Wales.
Maiden’s of Telford was first formed in 1931 and today offers three core areas of operation 1) General Haulage, including Contract Distribution, 2) Pallet distribution through the Palletforce and TPN networks, and 3) Warehousing and Storage.
This latest acquisition is another significant step in the development of Kinaxia, and Maiden’s of Telford are another highly respected company that share the same ethos and aspirations as the existing Kinaxia companies. As with all other Kinaxia acquisitions, all staff will be retained and it is anticipated that Maiden’s will continue to grow with its existing high levels of customer service further enhanced through the extended reach and increased resources accessible through Kinaxia.
Managing Director, Maiden’s of Telford, John Maiden commented:
“We are very pleased to be joining Kinaxia Logistics as this gives us a great opportunity to maintain the strong family values and customer service levels that have been developed over the last 86 years whilst providing a secure future for the business. We are excited about growing our business within the wider Kinaxia family.”
Kinaxia Logistics Director, Peter Fields commented:
“We are proud to welcome Maiden’s of Telford to Kinaxia and anticipate that their distinctive family culture and established levels of customer service will fit perfectly with the decentralised way that Kinaxia operates. John and his team will actively be involved in helping develop best-practice and grow our business through providing outstanding customer service and efficient, professional operations. Our aim is to build a flexible and efficient, service-focused UK haulage and warehousing group and it is anticipated that Kinaxia will make further investments in the next 12 months.”
