The Business

The P&A Group of Companies are a family run business with six divisions and a longstanding timber heritage. P&A Pallets & Packing Cases is the founding division of the P&A Group and has been supplying pallets and packing cases to businesses operating throughout North Wales and the North West for thirty years. Operating on a zero-waste policy, any unrepairable pallets are recycled and chipped, creating a fantastic biomass fuel that produces less carbon emissions than traditional fossil fuels.

Zest 4 Leisure (part of P&A Group) was established in 2005 to bring high quality, FSC® certified timber garden products to garden centres, online retailers and major purchasing groups across the UK, and has earned itself an enviable reputation and secured its position as a leading force in the outdoor leisure industry.

In 2018 the business has diversified to include aggregates to this offering with an aggregate bagging plant on site at the new facility in Saltney, and this aspect of the production operation is already showing fast growth potential.

In addition to the above, you will be a leader amongst your colleagues, developing and motivating your direct report Production Supervisors to enable them to deliver maximum production effectiveness and develop their own workforce capability.
