GREGORY Distribution, through its Scottish subsidiary ARR Craib, has purchased the Highland Haulage business based at Glasgow and Inverness.

Gregory’s MD, Angela Butler said: ‘Highland Haulage has been a stalwart of the Scottish transport industry for more than 25 years and the opportunity to extend Craib’s coverage throughout Scotland was compelling. Highland Haulage’s reputation for offering a high quality service complements both Craib and Gregory and we are delighted by this new addition.’

In selling Highland Haulage from the remainder of the Inverness based group, director Stuart Catto, said: ‘Highland Haulage was an integral part of our group for more than 25 years, but the time has come for us to focus our resources into other areas of our group.
