  • By Chris Druce

York logistics firm and Palletline member House of James has agreed a sale to Potter Group Logistics.

The deal, struck this week (16 May) boosts Potter’s turnover by 50% to £22m, adding 100,000ft² of warehousing space, 35 vehicles and 55 trailers to the fleet.

It is believed Simon Gill, MD of House of James, has committed to remaining at the enlarged business for at least three years in the role of commercial director.

Matthew Lamb, MD of Potter’s, says: “The House of James is a good fit with our existing business and we are looking forward to growing the combined businesses.

“The acquisition will enable us to offer our existing customer base improved services and will allow us to create new opportunities for Potter Group Logistics enhancing our position in the value added logistics market.”

Having received approval from its board, Potter Group Logistics has become a member of the Palletline network following the deal.

The House of James brand will also remain for now.
