“Since its birth in 1998, PSP has gone from strength to strength and has spread its arms around the globe with the focus on being the independent UK market leader in project logistics, freight, packing and boat transportation.


“The last 7 years have been particularly noteworthy and PSP has seen a significant growth in revenue. We have achieved this through a series of contributing factors.


We concentrated much of our fire-power on building our brand, particularly to awareness of it and its very special and unique ethos and services. And it has paid off, helping to give us a growth of over 10% per year.


“We now have three offices in the UK: Our headquarters in Fareham, Poole and London. Our plan is to open additional offices in the UK to make ourselves accessible to customers in the key places we have identified.


“We established the PSP Alliance, our network of handpicked agents across the globe, who work together to provide a seamless service for our customers. We now have members in Germany, Spain, India, South Africa, China, Dubai, Australasia, the USA and Antigua, who have all been chosen for the expertise and knowledge of their local areas and their presence in the boatbuilding and marine industries.


“However, we are committed to trebling this growth to become a £20M company by 2026. To do this, our directors need the space to concentrate and develop key areas of our business. So, today I am announcing our new board structure, led by myself as managing director. Each director is tasked to achieve their division’s percentage contribution to this overall objective.


“Of particular interest is that Jo Dixie will now head up PSP Marine. Jo’s experience in our industry is significant and she has developed professional relationships with the key players. She also has exceptional vision and her plans for development of this side of our business are strong and targeted to build on the solid platform we have established in the last ten years.


“A big player in our development plans is the customer expansion of our Marine Spares Division, headed up by our financial director, Darron Strange. Darron has recently returned from Korea where he has looked to increase trade by working more closely with our dedicated agent. With immediate effect PSP is able to supply, organise customs clearance and transportation by air or sea freight of a wide range of marine spares.


“The overseas links and international knowledge of the marine commercial and leisure industry Shaun Parsons has will underpin and spearhead both PSP marine divisions. He will continue to offer years of experience and knowledge to the sales team.


“Pivotal in our board of directors, Alex Dixie works across all divisions as operations director, growing his knowledge of the company and of our industry, ensuring we are fit to move into key selected new markets. It is critical that our own ship is maintained and well oiled to ensure the very personal service we are proud of giving to our customers remains unparalleled. 


“Mike Austin, as sales director, has proved himself adept at identifying, seeking out and closing on business opportunities. He leads our sales team giving confidence to make the impossible happen. Our client growth in the exhibition, project, oil and gas industries is testament to this.


“I am very proud of all that the team at PSP has achieved over the last ten years.  We are a brave company and this is the leadership team to take us to achieve our ambitious goals”.
