Derbyshire logistics businesses snapped up by Preston firm

Preston-headquartered GBA Logistics has acquired The Silver X Group and Bow Distribution and Warehousing, the Derbyshire-based logistics businesses.

GBA intends to keep the brand names of Silver X and Bow, and the existing management teams led by Gavin Burgess (Managing Director and founder) will join the GBA family.

The merged companies will work together on leveraging their strengths for mutual growth.

“We are thrilled to welcome Silver X and Bow to the GBA Logistics family,” said David J Birkbeck, chairman and founder of GBA. “Their longstanding commitment to customer service excellence and their reputation for integrity perfectly complements our own values.

“This acquisition brings together two successful family-owned companies who both have big ambitions for the future.”

Gavin Burgess said: “I am very excited about the future as part of GBA Logistics. GBA’s wide range of services and excellent European network will turbo-charge Silver X’s growth plans.”

Peter Zak, Group Managing Director of GBA Logistics, added: “I am looking forward to working with Gavin and his team, we have built up a trusting relationship and our businesses will be stronger together.”
