Trans­port com­pany sold

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - RECRUITMENT & BUSINESS FOR THE VERY LATEST JOBS AN -

ONE of Kent’s largest com­mer­cial ve­hi­cle spe­cial­ists, which has its head­quar­ters in Ash­ford, has been bought by its man­age­ment team.

Since it was set up in 1987 by out­go­ing own­ers Tony Chudleigh and Ron Stup­ple, Chan­nel Com­mer­cials has grown into a £40m-a-year busi­ness, with premises in Can­ter­bury, Sevenoaks and Strood in ad­di­tion to its head­quar­ters on the Cobbs Wood in­dus­trial es­tate.

The com­pany em­ploys 195 staff and was sold for an undis­closed sum.

Spokesman Mike Macin­tyre said: “Al­though it was a sim­ple deal in prin­ci­ple, it took the pro­fes­sion­al­ism of all those in­volved to make it hap­pen.”
