Adapted to our growing needs

Saint-Gobain Glass have been working with Ernest Coopers for a number of years now, specifically on cullet return.

The relationship and service to our wider customer base has seen growth over this period and with it the scope for which Ernest Cooper is now operating within. They have been able to adapt and maintain their level of service to meet the ever growing needs of Saint-Gobain Glass and our customers, in particular the transport department, who have been extremely helpful, very professional, and always able to help at short notice. On the ground we have been very impressed with the knowledge and flexibility of the drivers and their tasks with regard to cullet removal in bulk.

Having dealt with transport companies in the past, the experience with the team at Ernest Cooper has reassured Saint-Gobain Glass that it is dealing with a trustworthy and responsible supplier in its supply chain with the ability to meet our expectations.

Excellent level of service

Lytag have worked with Ernest Cooper Ltd for over 15 years and have been very impressed at how they have improved, grown and adapted to the ever increasing demands of road haulage.

They have a fantastic fleet of well-maintained and regularly renewed vehicles. All are enhanced by having the latest technology which ensures that their drivers, our loading operators and our customers can always expect safe, clean and on time deliveries.

Ernest Cooper have always put our customers first and have allowed us to offer next and same day delivery nationwide. They perform over 90% of all our haulage requirements (powder products being the only exception) and represent exceptional value for money based on the excellent level of service that they provide.
