A leading logistics company with a base in Deeside has continued its expansion with the acquisition of a long-established haulage business.

Delivery Solutions (Delsol) has bought Caernarfon-based haulier HF Owen Transport and Storage. 

Delsol purchased the company, which has been trading since 1972, for an undisclosed amount from the retiring owner Harry Owen.

The company will continue to trade under the HF Owen name and three members of the founder’s family, including daughter Helen and son Harry junior, will continue with the business along with 10 other staff.

Delsol has also begun an upgrade of HF Owen’s fleet of 10 vehicles.

It means that Delsol, which has its own depot in Caernarfon as well Sandycroft, now employs over 170 staff and has a fleet of more than 120 vehicles.

The company, which celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2019, specialises in parcel delivery, haulage, storage, pallet distribution, air and sea freight and transport of hazardous chemicals.

Dave Phillips, Managing Director of Delsol, said: “We are delighted to have acquired the HF Owen business. The company is well respected across North Wales and has a loyal customer base. 

“The purchase further consolidates Delsol’s position as the leading logistics business in the region.”

The acquisition follows a successful 2019 for the company which increased revenues by 20% – increasing the number of deliveries from 1500 to 1650 a day.

Tony Parry, who co-founded Delsol with fellow director Simon Walker in 1999, said: “We recognise the importance of not standing still and continuing to invest in the business, whether this is recruiting and training the best people, investing in the quality of our fleet or integrating the latest industry technology.

“Customer service has been key, providing a flexible and friendly service. Our customers are our greatest advocates and our best referrers of new business. 

“Without our dedicated staff and loyal customers, we would not be where we are today.”
