thc electric van imageThe Hill Company Limited is pleased to announce further environmental initiatives.

Hot on the heels of the purchase of two hybrid company cars we took delivery during September of our first fully electric van.
This is the first of many we hope to put on the road. It is a dedicated vehicle for one specific contract and is based at our West Thurrock site in Essex. It is able to carry out two round trips to the City of London on one full charge. Furthermore, in partnership, our client has installed a charging point within their premises so that we can top up if needed. The vehicle has been well received by both the dedicated driver Jo and our client. Jo says she loves driving it, so easy being automatic and no engine noise!!
Keep an eye out for the van - make sure you keep your eyes open as you will not hear it coming!!

In a separate move and further to bolster our environmental credential we have added a third hybrid company car to our fleet.

The Hill Company Ltd are pleased to announce the freehold acquisition of Aston Point, Aston Lane South, Runcorn, WA7 3BJ. The property is a self contained brand new high quality high bay warehouse. Aston Point is strategically located immediately off J11 of the M56 to enable us to serve our existing customers in Manchester, Leeds and Liverpool.

The unit is 44,812 sqft (4,163 sqm) and racking out for circa 750,000 boxes will commence shortly including the provision for a durasteel vault.

This acquisition further demonstrates The Hill Company’s commitment to continuously investing in modern facilities and technology. It is yet another pin in the map to our aim for nationwide coverage and comes within 12 months of the acquisition of our site in Scotland.
