Liam McElroy, Managing Director, Retail & Consumer of Wincanton commented further:

“This represents an exciting new contract win with family owned business wilko. Based on our experience and expertise in the retail sector, we will work in partnership with wilko and will look at every opportunity to strengthen the retailer’s supply chain, brand and customer experience. I look forward to being part of wilko’s continued success.”
