PPS is a provider of returnable transit packaging solutions. Operating from sites in South Staffordshire and Grimsby, the business moves 25 million trays and pallets a year on behalf of its customers. It offers delivery, collection, asset tracking and hygienic washing of plastic pallets and trays to customers in the fresh produce, industrial, office moves and automotive sectors.

PPS received a £4.9m growth capital investment from BGF in July 2015. Our investment helped fund the acquisition of Alison Handling Services, the UK’s largest independent stockist of returnable plastic packaging. Headquartered in Kirkham near Preston, Alison Handling Servicesis the largest independent stockist of new and used plastic boxes, containers and trays in the UK. The acquisition is allowing PPS to expand its current services and product range so that customers have access to a full range of packaging solutions and load carrying equipment.
