Three Generations & 100 + Years of Providing Quality Service
The Company was established in 1920 by Mr James Kirkby as a coal & fruit transporter. It developed into general transport from its former South Liverpool base until Mr Kirkby’s grandson, Gary assumed control in 2000, when his father James retired. New premises at a convenient North Liverpool location were occupied in 2002.
Since becoming Managing Director, Gary has concentrated on modernising & developing the business by constantly updating the fleet of vehicles & trailers. Today, he leads one of the foremost liquid bulk transport operations in Northern England.
With 40+ years of training & experience, Gary has a thorough knowledge of every sector of the industry. In addition to overall responsibility, he personally looks after marketing & sales, vehicle, trailer & other acquisitions.
