As a third-generation family business, which is part of sixth-generation company John Good Group, TEPS has reinforced its ability to adapt and grow in response to market needs, which is being a strategic supply chain and logistics partner in the Hull and Yorkshire region.  

The multimillion-pound investment in the new facilities amplifies TEPS’s advanced logistics and inventory management systems, significantly enhancing its operational efficiency and capacity. With the new state-of-the-art 25,000 sq.ft warehouse, capable of housing 5,000 pallets, TEPS has increased its capacity to nearly 200,000 sq. ft. This new facility is an inward investment into the Hull and East Yorkshire region, showing its confidence in the economy and for future progression. 

In line with TEPS’s dedication to sustainability, the new offices have been furnished with repurposed materials from other locations within the group and implemented solar energy onto the warehouse, both minimising the build’s environmental impact. This eco-conscious decision reflects the company’s commitment to the planet, further emphasised by the recent achievement of operational carbon neutrality by TEPS and John Good Group.  

Managing Director of TEPS, Paul Fordon, commented: “Our new warehouse and office space marks a significant milestone for TEPS. Our team are thriving in their new home, and this is just the beginning of scaling our operations into our new warehouse facility where we will showcase our commitment to operational excellence.    

“This next step for TEPS is a testament to our third-generation family business. The project team, led by Havercroft, have done an incredible job. They should be congratulated for what they have delivered for the business.”  

Adam Walsh, CEO of John Good Group, added: “I’m pleased for Paul and the team that the project has been completed and we’re now back to being fully operational. Projects like this always come with challenges, both in terms of the infrastructure build itself, but also in keeping a safe and productive business running at the same time. I’m pleased to say the team at TEPS achieved both. 

“I’d like to extend my thanks to Havercroft for the way they partnered with us to turn our ambitions for the site into reality. It’s been a big investment by the John Good Group, and we’re really pleased with the outcome. A great job by all the contractors who worked on the site. 

“Now the real work starts as we make the most of our new facilities for our customers and employees. We’ve delivered a great environment for our people, and with Paul and the team at TEPS very focused on efficiency and service, we’ve got a great platform for growth with our customers.”  

TEPS was founded by Alan Fordon, father of the current Managing Director, Paul Fordon. In recognition of the contribution and 68-year commitment that the Fordon family has brought to our region, the John Good Group has fittingly named their new state-of-the-art headquarters ‘Fordon House’.
