The independent voice of the global moving industry


PPS acquires Alison Handling

Sep 24, 2015
PPS, provider of crate hire to the commercial relocation industry has acquired Alison Handling Services, the UK’s largest independent stockist of plastic returnable packaging.

The acquisition will enable PPS to expand its current services for customers.  Currently PPS offers the delivery, collection, asset tracking, washing, rental and repair of returnable equipment and will now expand the services through Alison Handling to include sales of a wide range of load carrying equipment.   

PPS has experienced growth in its 13-year history, including the start of its crate rental service to the removal sector nearly 3 years ago. David Peggie, Chief Executive of PPS, said: “We’ve admired the services and reputation of Alison Handling for many years. As Tony Dearden looks to retire from the company he set up, we are proud to be able to take on the exceptional services and impressive customer base Alison Handling has created.” Business Growth Fund (BGF), the UK’s most active investor of growth capital, provided £4.9 million to support the acquisition and PPS’ growth plans.
