As we aim to adapt to working in both this very disruptive and fast changing time, our main priority is the safety and well-being of all our occupiers, staff and their families. From last week, we introduced strict measures in line with UK government advice and introduced new hygiene, social distancing and pre-meeting screening protocols in all our workplaces as well as finding new ways to operate remotely. The facilities management teams are working shift patterns in between the office and home. They are still fully contactable on all the usual phone numbers: https://www.hillingtonpark.com/contact/.
Finally we would like to express our sympathies to everyone who has been affected and continues to be affected by the COVID-19 virus. We would also like to show our support to the key workers including doctors, nurses and teachers who are working tirelessly across the country.
B-Spokes, which also operates distribution centres in Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Newcastle, is already exceeding its operational targets for its Glasgow operation with more than forty vehicles working to deliver over 3,000 parcels every day.
The company delivers a wide range of packages to domestic and commercial customers across much of the west of Scotland including Helensburgh, Strathaven, East Kilbride and large parts of the city of Glasgow.
Scott Winton, B-Spokes Operations Manager in Glasgow said: “We’re a really ambitious business and have grown strongly in recent years. The move to Hillington Park was ideal for us as our customer base grew. We’re right on the motorway network which allows our staff to be out delivering quickly and as soon as we finish processing the day’s packages.
“The building we are in also gives us scope to expand further without having to move and we’re already looking at that, just a couple of months from moving in.”
The business is also looking to undertake a large recruitment drive as the busy Christmas period begins to approach.
Scott added: “The festive period means a huge increase in our business activity. We expect the number of packages we deliver each day to double to 7,000 a day so we are now in a recruitment phase and looking to add to our team.”
