Little Pot’ Transport Limited was incorporated on 18th March 2004 and started trading on 6th April, of that year. The name was taken partly from the proprietors name and the letters of a cherished number plate LPT 1 (gifted to the owner, from his father’s business) and so, Little Pot’ was born.
Trading with one specialist crane vehicle and two low loader trailers, from a shared yard (Birds) in Oldbury, Little Pot’ successfully grew, with the continued support of loyal and quality customers and staff alike. The landing of a contract to supply Balfour Beatty Engineering Services (then based in Oldbury) saw the catapulting of Little Pot’s growth and again, set a momentous mark in its history. The steady acquisition of plant and equipment and the evolutionary growth of the business secured a reputation for a “one stop shop” with its customers and counterparts.
Established as a quality supplier of crane vehicles and fork lift mounted vehicles and a mixed fleet of rigid and articulated vehicles and an extensive range of trailers; power steered extendable, step frame, flat and curtain trailers with sliding roofs and coil bays for steel made up the trailer fleet. With the rigid fleet expanding from standard rigid vehicles, into a swap body fleet, comprising of crane mounted and fork lift mounted too. The rigid fleet have grown into sophisticated and well equipped four axle rigids with draw bar trailers (capable of 44 tons GVW) and large capacity cranes.
In 2008, the current location of the operation (in Trinity Street) was purchased and cementing a permanent base for the business, in The Black Country! Subsequently in 2009, the neighbouring abandoned railway bank was purchased, with a view to aiding the progressive growth and negating the need to move again. As of 2014, the site is still undergoing development and other business aspects will be incorporated within the Little Pot’ Brand. The business still continues to grow and looks forward to the appointment of existing members to director status and strengthening the integral parts of the business’s DN, allowing for expansion of the business and its services!
Little Pot’ expects to top 15 road going, full time vehicles by 2019 and with a serious focus on customer service, quality and the training of its staff, it is confident of a stable and profitable future! The business always has and always will continue to offer quality and continuity of its staff and services, priding itself on the continued compliance of its legal obligations and in the acquisition of various vocational qualifications, such as FORS and the like!
In 2014, the company celebrated its 10th anniversary, with a six page feature in Commercial Motor magazine and the acquisition of a new V8 Scania, decorated in all things “10”. It has appeared in the magazine feature, in the local newspaper, on a suppliers (KELSA) website and made a cameo appearance in a locally produced film! ….”Doreen, the Movie”! The company as a whole, looks forward to a period of progressive growth during the coming years and a prosperous and stable future!
