The History of Pulleyn
Adrian Pulleyn started his career in Formula 1, working with high end tyre manufacturers. He learnt the discipline and desire for excellence that only comes from working at the forefront of engineering innovation.
Adrian started his business with a cramped yard in Reading, with the instinct that the M4 corridor was going to emerge as a vital transportation hub to the continent. He risked all to build his company from these small beginnings, in amongst the technical innovation of the Silicon Valley that was springing up in and around Berkshire.
This was a time when technology had yet to work out how to be small. Computers took up whole rooms and phones were still connected to walls. So, Adrian’s offer to dismantle, pack, ship and rebuild equipment to an urgent deadline was ambitious. He soon became the leading haulier for the audio & broadcasting industry. With Formula 1 and Sony Broadcast on his resume, Adrian was really going for the ultimate image in transportation and storage.
Yet, it is not these illustrious beginnings that should be the mark of our success. It is Adrian’s vision to see the changing times and react with insight and speed to the market requirements that has ensured the company is the best regarded company in the business. With digitalisation and miniaturisation, the audio & broadcasting industry gradually moved on. Adrian saw huge potential in the pharmaceutical business and recognised early on that his reputation for reliability and care for the product was going to be crucial when handling life-saving medical equipment or pharmaceutical supplies. He moved with the times and the company thrived.
40 years later, Adrian and his sons continue to maintain the same ethos of personal care for the customer's experience. Our customer's needs and the requirements of the product or item are taken into account across all the logistical decisions we make, from storage, pick-up, dispatch and right through to delivery.
