T.Quality has acquired Glasgow-based Morrisons Foodservice in what it calls "a game changer" for the business.
The acquisition will see Morrisons Foodservice operate as a T.Quality division in Scotland, enabling the wholesaler to deliver to the whole of the country. It is part of T.Quality’s ongoing investment in its delivery network to help it cope with increasing demand and will aid in the development of new product ranges, allowing increased product availability.
Mike Crees, managing director of T.Quality, said: “We are delighted to be able to finally announce the acquisition of Morrisons Foodservice.
"We will be opening a new depot in the coming months, however, we will be immediately working from the current Morrisons site on Earl Haig Road in Glasgow.
"The acquisition of Morrisons Foodservice is a game changer for how we will operate in Scotland and really is an exciting opportunity for T.Quality.
"We will be able to add further capacity to our operation which will see us deliver to the whole of Scotland but will also help to enhance customer service levels with increased delivery dates.
"We look forward to working with everyone at Morrisons from current employees to customers and suppliers.”
T.Quality operates 10 branches, in Swindon, Bovey Tracey, Darlington, Avonmouth, Swansea, Peterborough, Birmingham, Leeds, Bridlington and Staplehurst, with an 11th outlet opening in the coming weeks in Portsmouth.
