BRIEF HISTORY OF WESTROPE BROS
The company we know today was founded in 1935 when brothers Gerald and Philip Westrope
brought two lorries to transport building materials for a new aerodrome which was
being constructed locally. The business started to expand but had to be put on hold
during the Second World War in which they both served. After the war the company
continued to grow becoming limited in 1954. In 1960 the company moved from Haverhill
to it’s present site in New England.
The family connection is still as strong as ever; Gerald’s sons and daughter are
still the companies director’s.
The company has always provided a convenient and reliable service to local industry,
delivering everything from bulk fuel tanks to foodstuff throughout the UK . Branching
out over the years into Europe, including delivery advertising boards across the
Continent to World cup football stadiums.
The company for many years also had a depot in Scotland servicing the oil industry.
In the year 2000 a sister company New England Transport Ltd was founded to handle
what was then a new concept in pallet delivery providing a next day and 2 day pallet
delivery service to anywhere in Britain . We are one of the original transport companies
chosen by TV’s Dragon Hilary Devey for her then new Company Pall-
