Pimpernel Wharf tops Christmas service with Fowler Welch

Nuneaton, UK: Continental cheese and charcuterie importer Pimpernel Wharf claims its most successful Christmas since using Fowler Welch’s Nuneaton distribution centre.

Fowler Welch distributes Pimpernel Wharf’s chilled storage, picking and distribution to retailers and wholesalers. The three year contract will see between 3-400 pallets stored on-site with a total throughput of two million cases per year.

Fowler Welch initially was due to commence in January but the contract was brought forward unexpectedly.

Daniel Stuart, managing director, Pimpernel Wharf said, “From the initial meeting, we were incredibly impressed with the entire Fowler Welch team and its facilities, but being able to bring us on board at short notice at the busiest time of the year was simply going above and beyond.

“The team listened and responded quickly and professionally, picking up all of our stock and covering all Christmas orders from 1 December. Not only did they take this on without question, but they proceeded to deliver the highest service levels our business has ever had over the same period.
“These incredible results are down to Fowler Welch’s knowledge and expertise, meaning we can focus on sourcing and supplying high quality cheese and charcuterie and growing our business, safe in the knowledge that we are working with a trustworthy partner that can seamlessly take care of our logistics needs.

Jonathan Lee, head of sales at Fowler Welch said: “Bringing Pimpernel Wharf into Fowler Welch Nuneaton is a really strong addition to our portfolio and going the extra mile when they needed it is exactly the kind of service that we pride ourselves on as a business. I’m incredibly proud that our skilled and knowledgeable team was able to provide such exceptional results under incredibly high-pressure circumstances and we look forward to continuing this standard as the relationship progresses, starting with bespoke trailer advertising for the New Year.”
