Celebrating 25 Years of The Pink Link Ltd


Yorkshire based palletised distribution company, The Pink Link Ltd; this year celebrates its 25th anniversary.

In 1991, The Pink Link Ltd, originally known as SBH Express Services, was created with a vision to become a trusted firm delivering pallets throughout the UK, with service excellence at the very heart of their business. Over the course of the last 25 years, The Pink Link Ltd made that vision a reality as in 1996 it became part of the Palletways (UK) Ltd national distribution network, who is the market leader in their field. It is because of this quality network that The Pink Link Ltd can confidently offer its customers the very best service possible.

“To this day The Pink Link Ltd is still driven by the entrepreneurial spirit of our founders and management team, which has enabled us to constantly improve our service, enter new markets and grow the business,” said Vicki Davenport, Sales and Commercial Director at The Pink Link Ltd. “The Pink Link’s client retention rate is a testament of how much our customers value our attention to detail and customer service.”

The Pink Link is particularly proud of its people employing a total of 45; this is why the firm has always invested in them. Being in the service industry, “people” are The Pink Link Ltd’s greatest asset.

Over the years The Pink Link Ltd has expanded its services into Europe via the Palletways network and now has access to 14 European hubs with 400+ member sites, allowing customers to benefit from local expertise and having one distribution partner for both UK and European services. Countries include Germany, Italy, Slovakia and Belgium.

The number of awards proudly on show at The Pink Link Ltd headquarters exemplify what a fantastic firm it is, to name just a few accolades, The Pink Link was awarded the Huddersfield Examiner business of the Year Award in 2006, Vicki Davenport was named Director of the Year at the Everywoman in Transport Awards in 2009 and the firm has received the prestigious Platinum partner status from Palletways for nine years.

Not only has The Pink Link carved a positive footprint on the logistics and palletised distribution industry, it has also made a massive contribution to local charities through its ongoing commitment to fundraising through a variety of charity events. Almost £200,000 has been raised for charities including Cancer Research UK, Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Kirkwood Hospice and the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice since 2001.

The success and growth of The Pink Link Ltd over the last 25 years can be attributed to the fact it is a family owned business which prides itself on providing their customers with an unrivalled degree of personalised service.

The firm celebrated the landmark anniversary at its head office with over 130 family and friends, a Hog Roast, live music, fun and games.
