About Us

Head Office for the Kenyon Group of Companies is situated at Thornley Avenue in Blackburn. A six and a half acre site located just one minute from Junction 6 of the M65.

The secure site incorporates a 65,000 square foot warehouse, a maintenance work-shop, offices and a transit bay along with parking for our extensive fleet of vehicles and trailers.

There are also separate warehousing sites within the Blackburn area providing managed warehousing at the disposal of our various storage customers.

How the Company was Established

The Kenyon Group has certainly evolved throughout its long history, spanning in excess of 75 years. Established in 1933 by the late, enterprising founder, Harry Kenyon Snr. Harry, having suffered a bout of pneumonia, was forced to trade his motorbike in for a small van, thus offering greater protection from the elements and laying the foundations of a Family firm that has gone from strength to strength in the intervening years.

investing in the future is the only way to achieve real and substantial growth…”

The Kenyon family are still very much involved in the day to day management, with the ongoing development program driven by both the present Managing Director Wayne Kenyon and his brother Michael who are the Grandsons of the founder. Collectively they have ensured that a measured and managed approach has been adopted for the tactical and strategic growth of the Company.

Wayne Kenyon took over the reins from his father as Managing Director in 1989 and his business philosophy is simple, he believes that, ‘investing in the future is the only way to achieve real and substantial growth’ proving this by adding more warehouses thus offering even greater flexibility in the services offered to customers within the Lancashire area.

Company Ethos

Kenyon Road Haulage has a large and diverse customer base and a good track record of gaining and retaining new business. Kenyon however, will not undertake a new customer’s distribution requirements unless there is a complete confidence that they can be offered the highest levels of service.

The ethos of looking after the customer has stood the Company in good stead and maintains a loyal and ultimately happy customer base, but the management do not take anything for granted and will never rest on its laurels, continually striving to offer new and innovative solutions to the Logistical problems of its customers.

Diversification into the field of over night pallet distribution, by joining the Palletways Express Pallet network, is an example of the way that the Company has identified a need within industry and its customers and offered both a cost effective and operationally efficient solution to single as well as multiple pallet consignments.

What the Future Holds ?

The Kenyon group of companies has evolved over the past 75 years from one motorbike in 1933 to its present position as a respected player in the logistics industry, who knows what’s next?

One thing is for sure; Kenyon Road Haulage and Kenyon Warehousing will continue to grow by offering the highest levels of service and innovation coupled with the personal touch of a family company which is something that our customers have come to expect and value.
