Pall-Ex member ADD Express has taken on former Palletways Manchester sales manager Bryan Mottershead as its business development manager as part of its expansion plans.

Mottershead’s appointment is part of a wider recruitment drive as the West Yorkshire company drives for growth over the next year.

The newly created role is one of 10 new jobs created at the 120,000sq ft Rochdale site, which is located close to the M62 and has undergone a recent £1.4m refurbishment.

Mottershead left Palletways Manchester in September last year, where he held the role of sales manager. Other former roles include business development manager at Premier Logistics and area manager at Rickby and Lee.

Mottershead is tasked with helping the Rochdale site reach its goal of operating at full capacity, transporting 4,000 pallets per night.

ADD Express, which is a founder member of the Pall-Ex network, operates part of the Rochdale site as Pall-Ex’s Northern Hub. The company also has a second site at Elland.

“As a veteran of the industry, Bryan has held a wide variety of roles and gained in-depth operational knowledge of pallet networks.

“That experience is valuable for building relationships with customers, understanding their needs and how we can exceed those needs from an operational perspective.

“ADD Express is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year and with Bryan joining the team we are confident that we will see significant growth during this milestone.”

Bryan Mottershead added: “My role is to develop new business, working alongside the directors and management team to lift the customer base to the next level and increase the freight moving through our new site in Rochdale.

“I’ve held nearly every role in the industry, from driver to director, operations to sales and business development, and my operational background is of real benefit when talking to prospective customers.

“I have been kicking down doors for a long time, so I’m quite well known in the industry and I enjoy the different challenges that each day brings, as well as that sense of achievement when it goes well.”
