Sabre bucks trend with triple turnover
Just twelve months after moving to new premises in Bradford, logistics business Sabre Ocean Solutions has tripled its annual turnover from £541,000 to £1.6m.
Since then, managing director Lee Meadowcroft has made several key appointments to deal with the continued growth forecast for 2013.
In June, Sabre appointed twenty-three year old Jessica Bailey as business development executive, followed in July by the appointment of key account manager Laura Wynne, 25. The latest addition to the Sabre team is Ally Walton, 46, who took up her post as finance manager last week.
In the past twelve months the company, which specialises in importing household goods from the Far East, has expanded its operation to include the shipment of fashion garments and white goods.
Launched by Lee in December 2010, Sabre has enjoyed rapid growth and is currently on target to achieve £2m in sales by the end of the current financial year.
Lee, 32, who lives in Wilsden near Bingley, spent fifteen years working for some of the region’s top logistics organisations before launching Sabre. He puts the company’s success down to a responsive, personal service and the cost savings he offers the region’s import businesses.
Lee said, “The move to larger premises has enabled to us to expand our team in the key areas of sales and finance. Over the next two years, we’re planning continued growth and aim to become one of the leading logistics companies in the North of England”.
“Bradford is my home town and it’s exciting to be able to play a small part in the regeneration of the city”, he added.
