We embrace challenge & opportunity & pride ourselves on our attention to detail. We believe you can’t build a reputation on what you’re going to do, but on how well you are doing it :
This is our philosophy. A family run company with over 40 years experience, we believe there is no better illustration of our capabilities than our work itself. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail and “hands on” approach. We believe our personal ambition, business interest, hard work and “can do” attitude gives us the edge over our competitors.
In 1970, William Charles Coleman began a paper waste disposal business, with simply himself and a vehicle. Previously working as a skilled carpenter, a serious accident at work resulted in the loss of three fingers, and William was forced to leave his employment. With a young family to support and his career in carpentry at an end, William adapted his skill set, and saw an opportunity in the waste paper disposal industry. The business grew and soon moved into General Haulage, in 1974, William was joined by his son, Bill Coleman, and together they established the Limited Company Billcole Haulage (Stevenage) LTD – BHL. In 1976, BHL adapted their services to incorporate a growing requirement for the Military, and began Export Packing for family relocations on UK Military bases for transport and shipment worldwide.
In 1982 the business began to advance into other commercial sectors, realigning its services to mirror changes in business needs, this included the provision of vehicle mounted cranes for steam boiler deliveries, for the Dry Cleaning Industry. In 1988, with the ever growing popularity of the Gymnasium, and consequently the rapid technological development of Gym Equipment, we gained a substantial contract with one of the largest contemporary Gym Equipment suppliers, for delivery and installation of that machinery nationwide. In 1993, with the development of a substantial pharmaceutical research site in the local area, BHLapproached the site advertising and promoting our commercial removals and transport services. We were invited to carry out some initial equipment transportation work, which was well received and hence developed into the provision of regular “Move & Churn” works for the site.
40th Anniversary :
In April 1974, Billcole Haulage (Stevenage) LTD – BHL, was established as a small family run General Haulage business. Since then we have grown and expanded in many ways, not only through physical size of our workforce, but also in knowledge, experience, expertise and service provision.
We are very excited to be celebrating 40 years in business this year and would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers for their support over this period and our dedicated staff for their hard work and commitment.
We are proud of this achievement and feel it is something to be celebrated, our aim for the future is to continue learning and growing, to maintain good customer relations, and to keep our strong work ethic at our heart. We hope our high quality services and business ambition continue to develop and allow us to celebrate many trading anniversaries to come!
