About

Torque

From our modest beginnings in Bramley, Yorkshire in 1991, the company now known as Torque operates in seven locations, with eight warehouses and well over 1000 employees.

We’ve expanded beyond those roots in our Yorkshire heartland (Leeds, Bradford and Wakefield), to premises in Wigan and, even further afield, at Heathrow. For full details on each site, click here. What’s more, our reach is now truly international, operating as we do in ports and airports across the globe. We are proud of our expansion and ability 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, while allowing 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 2019/20 Community Partner

Simon on the Streets was voted by Torque staff as our Community Partner for 2019/20. It is an independent outreach-based charity that supports rough sleepers in Leeds, Bradford, Huddersfield and other areas of West Yorkshire.

Over 2019 and early 2020, Torque sites worked with great effort, fundraising. An impressive £28,738 was raised for Simon on the Streets via a huge variety of fun events, organised by Torque staff. These included bake sales, coffee mornings, sleep outs, own clothes days and many more.

A huge well done and thank you to all of Team Torque that helped organise and plan our Community Partner events and a note of thanks must also be extended to our customers, many of which kindly donated stock for staff sales which helped raise a large portion of the total fundraising amount.

Lastly, thank you and well done to every Torque colleague that donated their time and money to help achieve such a spectacular amount for Simon on the Streets. It will make a difference to many people in a time when charities are struggling to continue to provide services.

Our fundraising for 2020-21 has had to be put on hold due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but we will be launching our next Community Partner scheme as soon as it is safe to do so.

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, and Rainbow Ward, Wigan Hospital.
