TWO Huddersfield businesses are celebrating 15 years in business together.
Netherton-based haulage firm The Pink Link Ltd has worked with Brockholes company Burton Safes since 1996.
They decided to mark their partnership as Burton Safes managing director Norman Berry is to retire at the end of this year.
Mr Berry founded Burton Safes in 1990, working from his garage.
Since then, turnover has steadily increased and the company is now a major supplier of safes for the home and commercial premises such as shops across the UK and Ireland.
The Pink Link has been its distribution partner for the past 15 years.
Said Mr Berry: “We chose the company back in the mid-1990s because we were fed up with national carriers and their poor customer service.
“The Pink Link is a local company with similar values and I believe it is important for local businesses to work together.”
He added: “They are a very strong unit. All the team know who you are and are happy to help.”
Vicki Davenport, sales and commercial director at The Pink Link Ltd, said: “I have worked with Norman for 15 years, so it will be the end of an era when he retires at the end of this year.
“But the partnership will continue and I look forward to continuing our successful relationship with Burton Safe’s operations director Jeremy Elson”.
