Not all roads lead to Framptons

May 2013

You may have noticed some new signs popping up on the roads around Shepton Mallet over the last week.


The two Framptons’ companies, Framptons Ltd and Framptons Transport Services Ltd have joined forces to make things clearer on the roads around Shepton Mallet with new signage to direct visitors to the correct sites for each of the two businesses.


Since Framptons became a part of Shepton Mallet life in the 1960s, the then one family business has since demerged into two separate companies and both have grown massively.  Framptons Ltd who are based on Charlton Road have increased their site and now also have units on the Crowne Trading Estate. Framptons Transport services have an established base on the Crowne Trading Estate and sites off Fosse Lane with their most recent development the Mendip Distribution Centre, which spans 85,000 ft².


Philip Ledbury from Framptons Ltd, who has coordinated the project on behalf of both companies, said: “We are acutely aware of the impact our operations can have on residents in the surrounding area at times, due to the nature of both businesses we generate a lot oftraffic and the bulk of this is Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs).


“We always try to work closely with our residential neighbours to ensure that any disruptions are kept to a minimum and the new signage has been put in place to try to limit the movement of HGV’s around the town, making it clearer on their approach to the town which route they need to take and assisting them in avoiding built up residential areas.”


Gilly Walters from Framptons Transport Services, said:” As a major local employer, we take both our environmental and social responsibilities very seriously.”


Both Framptons businesses play a key part in community life in Shepton Mallet supporting local schools, charities and organisations wherever possible and take an active role in the Mid-Somerset Show, the town’s agricultural show held every August.
