Welsh Secretary of State and TV Stars open UWL Depot

Tuesday, July 11th, 2017

A SOUTH Wales business set to bring in excess of 20 jobs to their new site in Barry has celebrated it’s official opening.

The event for the new United Worldwide Logistics (UWL) depot in Barry Docks took place on Friday, June 30, featuring guest speakers such as Vale MP Alun Cairns and businessman Nev Wilshire, famous for his role in BBC documentary ‘The Call Centre’.

The new site marks a return to Barry for business directors Michael Mitchell, Christine Hillier, Mark Hillier, Adam Ruckley and Michael Ruckley who are all originally from the town. The company has taken over the premises formerly owned by SHS Scaffolding, which went into administration in March costing nearly 150 local jobs.

  

Keeping Wales Open for Business.

The move forms part of the firm’s current campaign, ‘Keeping Wales Open for Business’, which forms the basis for ongoing plans to continue opening facilities around South Wales and create further jobs in the area.

This site will run alongside the current Bridgend and Cardiff Facilities.

Over 20 staff have already been taken on for the Barry site, while additional vacancies are still being filled for driving positions.

In his speech marking the official opening, Welsh Secretary Alun Cairns hailed the company’s passion and determination to boost the local economy of Barry, as well as putting the importance of new business into context within the wider country.

“Barry has turned a corner over the last five years,” said the MP.

“I’m grateful for what you’re doing for the wider economy. You are the oil that keeps it turning.

“I’d like to thank you for what you’re doing for the community in Barry, but also for the people who work for you. It really does matter.”

Mr Cairns went on to add how it was his decision to add the scrapping of the Severn Bridge toll to the Conservative election manifesto – and believes this will help link the economies of Wales and Bristol together to benefit the country.

TV personality and businessman Nev Wilshire also delivered an impassioned speech, levelling criticism at the Welsh government for failing to invest sufficiently to help Welsh enterprises like UWL.

Actor Ewan MacIntosh aka Big Keith from ‘The Office’ was also in attendance.

Big Keith’s appraisal in the BBC show has gone down in comedy history as he sat vacantly while David Brent tried in vain to make him care about paper.

Ewan was also in attendance at the opening and is pictured above with UWL accountant Christian Powys.

UWL Proud Sponsors of British Flyweight Champion Andrew Selby

Monday, November 14th, 2016

We are happy to announce that United Worldwide Logistics are proud sponsors of rising star and local boxing talent Andrew Selby from Barry South Wales. As we love to invest in local business’s and people this was a perfect opportunity to do so and help a local talent reach his full potential.

Andrew Selby, United Worldwide Logistics

Barry, Wales native Andrew ‘AC Superstar’ Selby has made an impressive impact since turning pro last year. Former world number one ranked amateur Selby has already picked up the vacant British flyweight crown earlier this year when comprehensively beat Leicestershire’s Louis Norman by a wide points decision at Cardiff’s Ice Arena Wales.

The super talented Selby, 6–0 (4), has taken to the pro game like a duck to water but on November 18 at the SSE Arena, Wembley he faces by far his toughest test to date as a professional when he takes on the Philippines Jake Bornea for the vacant IBF Inter Continental flyweight title. This clash of top prospects will act as the support bout George Groves’ WBA International super middleweight title defence against Germany’s two-time world title challenger Eduard Gutknecht.

Currently ranked number 15 with the WBO, Jake ‘D-Twins’ Bornea comes from a fighting family, with his brother Jade also a prospect back in their native Philippines. The twenty-one year old Bornea hails from General Santos City, also the home of superstar Manny Pacquiao. Like the ‘Pacman’, Bornea wants to go on to become world flyweight champion and if he is to achieve this goal he must surely beat the undefeated Selby on November 18.

“If Selby is as good as I think he could be, he’ll be fighting for a world title before 10 fights,”

“That’s how good he is. I really think Andrew Selby is one of the most talented kids in the world.”
