In December 2018, Barry retired after a long and distinguished career. His commitment to his wide and varied customers was only equalled by his devotion to his staff, many of which have been at his side for the best part of three decades. A few of his most senior staff engineered a Management Buy Out whose commitment to upholding Barry’s Ethos was fundamental to their plans. Roy Collins will thus take over as MD of the Company with Nigel Scales as Operations Director within the coming weeks.
Joining them on the New Board of Directors will be two businessmen, Harold Gittelmon and Morris Robinson, whose combined experience in business, manufacturing, trading and logistics will ultimately assist in growing the Company to become a formidable and exciting prospect.
