A Bury St Edmunds based warehousing and distribution company has secured a contract with a US children’s products manufacturer.

Century Logistics, on Saxham Business Park, has formed a partnership with Prince Lionheart which has allowed them to recruit new staff.

With seven other sites across East Anglia, Century helps British, European and global companies through the storage and distribution of goods to retailers and consumers.

Georgiana Browne, head of Europe at Prince Lionheart, which started in 1973 with hand made rocking chairs and now sells innovative products across the world, said: “This partnership will allow us to focus on what we do best; invent, design and manufacture products that matter, are safer, or just plain better.

“We don’t do things simply for the bottom line; we do things because they are the right things to do for the ongoing growth and success of all our business relationships.

“We are extremely happy to find in Century Logistics, another family business, with similar values and principles at its core.”

Stephen Basey-Fisher, managing director at Century Logistics, added: “We’re very proud and excited to be starting this new partnership with Prince Lionheart.

“It further demonstrates our expertise in this sector and our ability to help companies focus on building their brands and sales revenues, with less cost and less hassle.”
