Gregory Distribution acquires Pollock22 March 2021
Gregory Distribution (Holdings) has acquired Pollock (Holding) and its subsidiaries Pollock (Scotrans) and Pollock Express. The business is headquartered in Bathgate, West Lothian, in central Scotland.
Like Gregory, Pollock is a private family-owned business. With 150 vehicles and more than 200 employees, Pollock is a significant addition to the Gregory Group and will operate alongside Gregory Distribution, ARR Craib and its Scottish JV Hayton Coulthard.
Gregory said that this acquisition will considerably enhance its presence in the Scottish transport and logistics market particularly as it includes over 55,000 sq ft of warehousing located at the Bathgate headquarters.
John Gregory said: “We will be maintaining the strong Pollock brand and we are delighted that Scott Pollock will continue to lead the Pollock business within the group. It will be very much business as usual for all of the Pollock team and its customers”.
Scott Pollock said: “After 80 years as a family business we feel that the time is right for Pollock to become part of a bigger group and I look forward to realising the opportunities which this brings. As a family owned company, Gregory’s shares the same values as ourselves.”
