About Gillards

Gillards Warehouse Logo

Founded in 1981, Gillards started trading from a 3,000 square foot unit in Bristol offering print finishing services to the local print trade. Fast forward 40+ years and today the business has transformed into a global e-fulfilment and logistics provider operating from a 110,000 square foot site.

Order Fulfilment

Building relationships with clients remains the guiding principle and as Managing Director Andrew Clarke explains, a personal approach is vital.

“We work as a tight-knit team, and this is particularly useful when last minute or unusual requests need to be resolved. When our clients are under pressure, our experience and flexibility mean we can solve problems quickly.”

Today, Gillards are the custodians of end-to-end eCommerce and fulfilment services for a wide range of customers. We store, pick, pack, and deliver a variety of products from high-end calligraphy pens and wooden toys to designer jeans and electric bikes.
