2022 has seen T. Quality further strengthen its position as the UK’s leading fish and chip shop and fast-food wholesaler with its expansion into two new sites based in Hillington (Glasgow) and Fareham (Portsmouth).
Delivering a variety of products ranging from fish and chip shop supplies, fast food outlets and pizza supplies through to wholesale fish. T. Quality had previously operated a fully integrated national service network across 10 sites in the following locations Bristol, Birmingham, Bovey Tracey, Bridlington, Darlington, Leeds, Peterborough, Staplehurst, Swansea and Swindon. The expansion sees T.Quality grow to 12 active depots across the whole of the UK.
The two new sites have also started their waste oil collection service as part of T.Quality’s planned growth in the used cooking oil sector.
T. Quality – Portsmouth
Set in the Fort Wallington Industrial Estate, T. Quality – Portsmouth opened in April 2022 into a 16,000 sq.ft pre-existing site. Located minutes away from the M27 the site opens fantastic network and routing opportunities across the south of England.
The new site created 16 jobs and is currently operating with six trucks, two express vans, and one used cooking oil collection van.
The site will offer deliveries from Pool to Seaford including the Isle of Wight.
T. Quality – Glasgow
Set in Hilington Park, Scotland’s largest business park, T. Quality – Glasgow opened in August 2022 into a purpose-built unit following the acquisition of Morrisons Foodservices in March 2022. 25,000 sq.ft in size the T. Quality Glasgow branch is the largest to date.
The site created 25 new jobs for the local area and is currently in full operation with 10 vans and 1 lorry in use with further investment planned for the delivery fleet into 2023.
The site will offer deliveries to the whole of Scotland.
Mike Crees, Managing Director of T.Quality said: “The expansion into both our new Portsmouth and Glasgow depots are really exciting opportunities for T.Quality as a whole. Both sites will add further capacity to our operation but will also help to enhance customer service levels with increased delivery dates and the opportunity to reach new areas.
Portsmouth will see us continue to grow on our already exceptional reputation on the south coast of England. The site allows us to offer a better and more focused service to our existing and new customers and will expand delivery options to key holiday areas in the south of England. The Portsmouth site will also help in reducing our carbon footprint out of our Swindon and Staplehurst sites.”
Mike Crees continued “The acquisition of Morrisons Foodservices based in Glasgow allowed T. Quality to significantly build on a growing customer base in Scotland. The purpose-built site is the largest of all our depots and shows the exciting potential and plans which we will be laying down in Scotland and is truly a game changer for how we will operate in the region.”
