From modest beginnings in Bramley, Yorkshire, in 1991, Torque now operates in eight locations, with eight warehouses and over 1300 employees.
We’ve expanded beyond those roots in our Yorkshire heartland (Leeds, Bradford and Wakefield), to premises in Castleford, Wigan, Manchester, and Heathrow. For full details on each site, click here. Whilst our local communities are central to our company ethos, our reach is international, operating in ports and airports across the globe enabling us to satisfy our customers' demands, whatever and wherever they may be.
We've made substantial investments in technology across our business to ensure that in all aspects of our service we remain one step ahead of the ever-changing retail landscape, supporting our customers to innovate and grow.
By taking care of their supply chain – from ship to store to customer’s door – we enable the dynamic, fast-growing brands with whom we work to concentrate on doing what they do best: looking after and expanding their business.
We understand the drive for growth as it’s a journey we’ve been on ourselves. We’re motivated to do everything we can to help our customers realise their ambitions, and we prove it by regularly going the extra mile on their behalf.
Our 2023/24 Community Partners
This year, Team Torque has decided to support two Community Partners. The votes for these two causes were incredibly close, and they clearly mean a lot to our employees.
The funds we raise will be split equally:
We will purchase life-saving defibrillators to put into community locations suggested by Torque employees. This might be a school, a sports ground or a local community centre.
Andy’s Man Club
Andy’s Man Club is a suicide prevention charity. Their goal is to end the stigma surrounding men’s mental health. This charity is particularly close to many of our colleagues’ hearts.
We’re thrilled to have kicked off fundraising in April, and we’re hoping to make this our most successful year of fundraising yet. Keep up to date with our upcoming Community Partner activities, and our ever-growing fundraising total, on the Torque blog.
A little on our CSR
Every year, we select a local Community Partner to support, voted for by our employees. Each of our sites joins in the fundraising activity, and the proceeds are shared between those chosen projects, with the business supplementing the final total. Partners over the years have included The Brick Project (Wigan), The Conservation Volunteers (Leeds), Inn Churches (Bradford), Meanwood Valley Urban Farm (Leeds), Crigglestone Daycare (Wakefield) and Bradford Disability Sports and Leisure, Wakefield Riding for the Disabled, Rainbow Ward, Wigan Hospital, Simon on the Streets (West Yorkshire) and Guide Dogs (South & West Yorkshire).
