The Storage Place (TSP Fulfilment) is celebrating after its award win at the 2022 Ward Hadaway North East Fastest 50 Awards for Fastest Growing Small Business’
The fulfilment business, which has recently become carbon neutral, won the award for the small business category and the second-fastest growing business overall for its high-quality services in B2B and B2C large-scale order fulfilment, including online shopping giant Amazon.
Paul Griffiths, Managing Director of The Storage Place, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be crowned Fastest Growing Small Business and would like to say a huge thank you to our team who make it all possible.
“Our goal is to become the best fulfilment business in the UK and we’ve set out to completely transform how the fulfilment industry operates. It’s often seen as the amateur counterpart to the supply chain sector in terms of processes, people management and technology innovation.
“This award means we are one step closer to our goal and are delighted to be officially recognised within the industry for our growth.”
The Storage Place was established in 1999 and the 2008 stock market crash forced the company to rethink its strategy.
“Our warehousing market disappeared pretty much overnight”, Chief Executive Michael Meredith added, “and we recognised that there was a demand for fulfilment in the retail industry so we jumped at the chance to grow beyond warehousing and be the go-to business to meet e-commerce needs.
“With Paul joining us in 2020 as Sales Director and now heading up the role of Managing Director, The Storage Place has come on leaps and bounds. We share the same vision of redefining the blueprint for growth for a fulfilment business. Rapid growth and transformation brings many challenges – but we’re on the road we want to be on now.”
The Storage Place is shaking up the industry by offering end-to-end order fulfilment service solutions. It is one of the only businesses in the UK to provide sustainable fulfilment as well as all of Amazon’s eCommerce services.
