Dynamic Storage Ltd celebrate 25 years in business on 1st November 2016!
We are delighted to be celebrating our 25th year in the business of pallet transport and self storage in Yate. Here’s how it all started:
The company was founded in 1991 by the present Managing Director Steve Barratt plus three other former employees of British Aerospace Dynamics who were facing redundancy.
At that time British Aerospace were encouraging employees to form their own companies or self-employment with interest free loans, repayable after 2 years or a loan write off if the new companies employed personnel in a set period of time, in proportion to the value of the loan. Dynamic Storage managed to employ a sufficient number of personnel for the loan to be written off.
The company located in several rented premises until 1998, when we bought our present site in Stover Road, Yate from Bookers PLC. The site is approx. 6 acres encompassing approx. 100,000 sq. ft. of covered storage. Our main activity continues to be storage, handling and transport. The company is a designated approved Customs and Excise Bonded Warehouse and duty free site, for the storage of goods from many parts of the world including USA, China and Europe.
Our Managing Director is now the only original member of the company formed in 1991. Julie Barratt, a qualified accountant and wife of the M.D. is the Company Secretary.
The staff of 50 personnel are employed as managers, admin staff, warehouse staff and drivers, almost all of whom come from Yate and district. The longest serving member of staff is Jenny Ferris a forklift truck driver who recently completed 20 years of continued employment.
Our customers, number several hundred, a tier of approx. 25 large companies have been clients for many years including Rolls Royce, BAE, GKN, Whirlpool (Indesit) and Fowlers of Bristol.
We’re looking forward to another 25 years serving our customers in the South West.
