A.D.D. Express Ltd has celebrated its 30th Anniversary in style with a party at its state-of-the-art facility in Rochdale. Founded in 1991, the Pall-Ex and Fortec shareholder member invited colleagues and friends from throughout both networks, as well as many long-standing customers, suppliers and partners to enjoy the festivities. Live music, great food and free flowing drink meant a good time was had by all on the night.
The event also played host to a special unveiling of two new MAN trucks, adorned in special gold 30th Anniversary liveries. The vehicles will now lead the A.D.D. Express fleet, which help to deliver quality distribution services across the North of the UK and beyond.
In addition to this, A.D.D. Express also unveiled an updated logo, reinforcing its core values and its position as the premium logistics provider in the region.
Having opened the facility in Rochdale at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, the business has continued to see growth in its 30th year and it the updated logo with the most notable change to being in the strapline.
Where once read “National Pallet Distribution” now boldly reads “Advanced Dependable Distribution”.
