25 Years in Business

25 years trading…. From the proprietor himself; Mr Roy Butler

Well, 25 years of trading! Where do you start?

We have witnessed many changes within the industry over the years, changes in customer needs, changes in trading standards and not forgetting all the changes in me; and boy there have been many of them!

We are on customer number 704 and employee number 170. Over the period the fleet boasts of 32 vehicles, ranging from small vans, flat beds and to the recent additions - curtain sided artics.

Butlers originally started off offering deliveries of plastics and specialist construction goods, until a friend happened to asked if we could collect from Heathrow because they were having some service issues, and the rest is history.

Opening the door on airfreight and media related product distribution enabled Butlers to expand and cultivate their services and product range, whilst moving forward with industry demands.

I believe the key element to our survival, in what is seen as a highly competitive industry, is to listen to the customer, be honest with them and above all keep them informed on all developments.

Have I enjoyed it? I would not have missed it for the world – well I do wish I could have spent more time listening to an artist at the Jazz Cafe or even a polite chant at the Emirates, but we all could say that!

We have and will play a key role moving products for local or international customers, with the common goal “To make the world go round”

Finally I would like to say personally, and on behalf of everyone at ‘Butlers Of Kent’ thank you all for your continuous support.

Roy Butler
