Dave Antrobus Welcomes Caribou to Award-Winning Group Inc & Co

Companies / Corporate News Oct 26, 2021 - 08:52 PM GMT

By: Sumeet_Manhas


The packet and parcel consolidator Caribou marks Inc & Co’s 15th acquisition.

Since technology specialist Dave Antrobus and entrepreneurial investor Jack Mason launched the award-winning business group Inc & Co in 2019, the collective has branched out in multiple directions. Despite COVID-19, Inc & Co has reached impressive growth milestones over the past two years and has now made its 15th acquisition. This time, Inc & Co is delighted to welcome the domestic and international multimodal logistics provider Caribou to the group.

Welcoming Caribou

Headquartered in Hyde, Caribou’s logistics team comprises 550 employees (bringing Inc & Co’s total headcount to 750) and 16 depots across the UK. Since its founding in 2018, the logistics provider has developed a proprietary software system that makes the delivery process transparent and smooth for both e-commerce stores and customers, who can track their parcels all the way to their front doors.

Caribou’s logistics technology has accommodated the soaring demand for parcel deliveries throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and they have become a popular logistics provider for e-commerce businesses across the UK as a result. Caribou has also acquired several logistics companies to meet this rising demand, integrating Six Ten Logistics, TM Couriers, C&D Transport, Osborne Motor Transport, K2 Transport and Logistics, and GLB Transport into its technology-fuelled network.

Inc & Co: Home to Ambitious Businesses

Based in Manchester, Inc & Co is home to several ambitious businesses and provides the resources, advice, and funding these businesses need to grow their ambitions yet further. As Inc & Co has grown so rapidly, the group has now launched four sub-groups – Inc Retail, Inc Property, Inc Agencies, and Inc Software – to offer sector-specific support so companies can become leading enterprises in their markets.

Inc Retail

Inc Retail’s expertise in today’s shopping trends and digital evolution puts the sub-group in an ideal position to help retail brands best serve their customers. This arm of Inc & Co has grown rapidly over recent months, welcoming brands like the high street healthy eatery Chop’d, luxury bag and accessory provider KNOMO London, and plant-based milk alternative creator Gut Instinct, which is already the preferred milk alternative in multiple coffee houses across the UK. Inc Retail is also home to the award-winning unisex children’s clothing brand Tootsa and the leading on-demand laundry service Laundrapp.

Inc Software

Meanwhile, Inc & Co has also launched a software arm, which provides the platform the analysis and systems agency Wood for Trees needs to grow its client base. As data management experts, the team at Wood for Trees helps non-profit companies make the most of their data assets.

Inc Software is also the home of the DevOps company Incforge, which offers hosting, scaling, and security solutions for its clients. incforge’s technology specialists handle many platforms within Inc & Co, optimising these from a technological point of view and ensuring compliance with data regulations.

Caribou is the latest company to join Inc Software, where it will develop its innovative logistics technologies yet further.

Inc Agencies

Inc Agencies is home to the brand-building agency Skylab, which works with sports brands like Swim England, England Golf, and BBC. Skylab offers website and application development and digital strategies to help sports brands embrace technological solutions. Since joining Inc & Co, Skylab has also grown to encompass the global analytics company Insight Analysis and web and mobile development agency Cuhu.

Inc Property

Finally, Inc Property is the sub-group behind the popular, UK-wide workspace provider incspaces. incspaces offers shared, flexible office spaces for freelancers and business teams in Manchester, Leeds, and London. Those looking for ergonomic spaces to work comfortably can choose from incspaces’ wide selection of revamped offices, which are open 24/7 and include all office amenities. incspaces is generating even more interest now that businesses are returning to the office post-pandemic to collaborate in person once again.

How Joining Inc & Co Will Benefit Caribou

Though Inc & Co knows how to hone, grow, and develop a business, the group always preserves each acquisition’s identity, ethos, and brand. Meanwhile, Inc & Co’s group capabilities allow each of its acquisitions to benefit from invaluable knowledge share and collaborative opportunities. As a relatively young company, Caribou has already formed unique offerings for the logistics sector and developed a successful brand. Now, Inc & Co can enrich Caribou with further digitisation strategies, growth-oriented resources, and capital injections from Fresh Thinking Group. What’s more, Caribou will have access to the technical know-how of other acquisitions under the Inc & Co umbrella, especially those that specialise in technologies.

About Dave Antrobus

As the Chief Technology Officer and co-founder of Inc & Co, Dave Antrobus brainstorms the software solutions that help the group’s acquisitions attract, convert, and retain growing customer and client bases. Not only does he head Caribou’s technological developments, but he has also led web development projects for major names like Google and SimplyBe.

Dave Antrobus plays a key role in mentoring and managing Inc & Co’s software developers, helping each conceptualise and develop their own innovative solutions. As a result, the business group consistently comes up with advanced technological systems and platforms for its sector-leading brands. A seasoned project manager, Dave Antrobus applies Agile methodologies throughout Inc & Co, which allows the group to streamline its operations, maintain efficiency, and uphold collaboration and communication throughout all projects and processes.
