Exciting developments for F&W with the acquisition of Alan R Jones & Sons Ltd

In a statement from Fagan & Whalley's website;

Following discussions that have taken place over the last few months between the team at Fagan & Whalley and the management team at Newport, South Wales based logistics company Alan R Jones & Sons Ltd., we’re excited to announce that our acquisition of the company has now been completed! 

The acquisition will bring with it increased potential for further development, with a fleet of 39 commercial vehicles, 40,000 sq. ft. of warehousing space, and a strategically located distribution depot in Newport, South Wales, all contributing to our existing operations, expanding our service offering and adding value to both sets of customers. 

As a company which operates with a people-first approach, valuing our team is a core element of our company philosophy. With no initial plans to make any changes to services currently being offered by both companies, our priority in these early stages is being placed on ensuring teams across both organisations continue to receive the support they need to continue working effectively, and that customers of both Fagan & Whalley and Alan R Jones & Sons continue to receive an excellent level of service, tailored to their individual needs. 

“Following a period of significant growth and development, we saw this as a valuable opportunity to strengthen our geographical position and embark on the next step in our plans for expansion,” says F&W Business Strategy Director, Sam Fagan. 

“We’re extremely proud to be welcoming the Alan R Jones team on board and to be acquiring the brand as part of the Fagan & Whalley family. It’s a match that’s not only strategic, but one that makes sense. Alan R Jones & Sons is a business that, having been built up from an initially small operation just like our own was, holds similar core values and celebrates an excellent reputation in Wales and across the South West. It will be beneficial to have additional strategic locations functioning in our network, and we’re looking forward to working with the impressive, stable, and diverse customer base that the Alan R Jones team has worked hard to develop over their 50 years in business. 

Ray Clegg, former Managing Director of Alan R Jones & Sons Ltd., commented: “It had become an obvious strategic move for the business to look at new opportunities, and when we had a discussion with the team at Fagan & Whalley, it was immediately clear that they put their people at the core of what they do, with a reputation that’s second to none, and I am truly delighted that Alan R Jones & Sons will now move forward into the future with new leadership and new opportunities to cement its status as a service-driven, people-led, award-winning organisation.” 

Sam Fagan added: “This move to develop our network and operations come as a vital part of our wider business plans to orchestrate continual growth and expand into new locations, particularly in the South West. It has provided an opportunity for us to increase our customer base and streamline our operations to ultimately become more efficient in our work. 

There’s substantial potential for further scale and growth, and we’re really looking forward to what promises to be a bright future for Fagan & Whalley Ltd. and Alan R Jones & Sons Ltd.”
