As jets roared overhead, Alex paid tribute to the many people who had helped him grow the business over the years and to the members of his current team which he described as a really wonderful group that he felt so lucky to be working with. He said that 20 years in, it seemed like the story was only just beginning.

The brand-new 20,000 sqft warehouse and office complex is capable of holding around 400 containers and is one of three facilities operated by the Group in the London area.
