Fast-growing logistics firm Knights of Old has announced its expansion details, including a new warehouse and the delivery of new Yale machines.

Knights of Old is one of the fastest-growing logistics firms in the UK, after seeing turnover rise from £7 million to £30 million in ten years.

Now, in a bid to promote further growth, the business has invested in a new £500,000 warehouse base at Hitchin. It has also taken delivery of ten new Yale machines from its supplier, Briggs. The development came after a contract renewal from one of the firm's largest customers, reports.

Its new site now houses ten 2.5-tonne gas-powered counterbalance trucks, two 2.3 electric counterbalance trucks, two narrow-aisle flexi machines, a scissor lift and a sweeper. It is expected that the firm will soon be hiring drivers and warehouse staff in order to assist with the further growth of the business.

Speaking to, managing director of Briggs, Jason Rudkin, explained: "We wanted to ensure that Knights of Old could provide the very best service to its customers.

"All of the machines supplied to the Kettering and Hitchin sites include our award winning Speedshield and BE Fleet systems to significantly reduce overall operational costs. Many also feature the latest techtonix 100 transmission for improved safety."
