Martin Donnachie, chief executive officer of Fulcrum, said: “Fulcrum’s highly skilled direct workforce will create an even more powerful platform to deliver continued growth through customer-focused operations in Scotland.”

The new direct delivery teams were launched at Fulcrum’s new depot in Cumbernauld where the teams were given an insight into the organisation’s strategy, took part in a range of training exercises and met new colleagues.

Martin Donnachie, continued: “Since the introduction of the direct delivery model in England and Wales, Fulcrum’s customer satisfaction levels have hit record highs, confidence has grown and the company has increased its capacity.
