Whistl becomes 7th largest private business in the Thames Valley

September 2020

Marlow headquartered Whistl, the largest delivery management company in the UK, has become the seventh-largest business in Thames Valley with a £600m plus turnover, according to the 2020 Thames Valley 250, published by Business Magazine.

Whistl was created when the UK postal market was opened to competition in 2004, allowing companies to collect and sort business mail and pass it on to Royal Mail for delivery.  

Alongside an existing doordrop marketing service, the company has expanded from business mail into parcels, both in the UK and internationally.  It has seen significant growth in recent years as it has moved into fulfilment with inventory management and warehousing, pick and pack and contact centre management for medium-sized brands and retailers.

As well as the Marlow HQ, the company has operations throughout the UK.  It underwent a management buyout from parent company PostNL in 2015 and is led by Chief Executive Nick Wells.

We have always had an entrepreneurial spirit within the company and the management buyout allowed us to build on our postal heritage as we expanded internationally and also into fulfilment and contact centre services.  Our success and seventh place ranking are built upon the great team we have at Whistl who continue to give customers the best possible service.

Nick Wells, CEO of The Whistl Group
