McQueens launches in West Yorkshire
Long established family firm McQueens Dairies has opened a new base in Huddersfield – creating 30 jobs.
The doorstep delivery company, founded in Scotland, launched its new depot at Unit 29, Beck Road in the town, its third English base.
McQueens Dairies director Ruairidh McQueen, who is based at the West Yorkshire depot, said: “We are delighted to launch in Huddersfield, and it is fantastic to be able to create so many new jobs in the region. As we continue to grow we’ll be recruiting additional members of staff to join the team.
“We are very fortunate to have a terrific team of employees on board, as our staff are fundamental to the success we plan to achieve in the area.”
Ruairidh is keen to stress that the services of a modern-day milkman are much more than simply nostalgia. “Milk delivery is very much an important part of communities,” he said. “As well as delivering milk to the doorsteps of thousands of households, we are also making an increasing number of deliveries to office premises.
“Businesses see big benefits in milk being on the doorstep first thing in the morning. Employees never miss out on their first ‘work’ cup of tea or coffee, keeping morale high, and staff members aren’t using business time to go to the shops.”
McQueens Dairies, a third generation family firm, was founded in 1995 and delivers milk to the doorsteps of thousands of residential properties across the UK, as well as providing a service to commercial premises.
