History of Wm Armstrong Group

Modern Times | 2000 - Present

The 2001 foot and mouth disease outbreak had a severe effect on the region and the company diversified by joining with other UK hauliers to form PalletFORCE, a palletised goods distribution network run by its members and operating throughout the UK and Europe. Wm Armstrong were honoured by fellow members by being voted Palletforce Depot of the Year 2003 at the annual awards ceremony.

In the following years the company expanded its haulage operation with the acquisition of Robsons Haulage Ltd and Forster's Light Haulage and the opening of the Wm Armstrong Depot at Uddingston Glasgow. It has also diversified into commercial vehicle sales and service with the acquisition of Cumbria Truck Centre Ltd in 2002 and Armstrong Trucks at Uddingston Glasgow.

Other new business growth in recent years includes the Truckapart online parts store which went online in 2010 and our VOSA Authorised Testing Facility (ATF) at Cumbria Truck Centre which opened in 2015.

The Armstrong Group was delighted to win the Transport and Logistics category in the inaugural Cumbria Family Business Awards in 2017, putting the business in a great position for the future.
