Seabourne Express South Africa was given an opportunity to add a complementary business to our existing portfolio. In the process the company has gained more visibility in its core courier and distribution business and gained a warehouse component specifically aimed at the specialist technology market. This has meant upgrades to most of our branches countrywide as the whole company embraced this exciting and important new venture!
Most of the planning took place at the end of 2015, the building of infrastructure (shelving, IT backbone, telephony system) was done in early January 2016 and the new site was occupied after 11 years doing business at the previous premises. Our actual handover of stock commenced end of January and continued for 6 weeks.
Seabourne South Africa is proud to continue its excellent service to our current clients and look forward to extend the same level of service to our new business partners.
Seabourne Group are delighted to announce the latest addition to the Group’s portfolio. Today, Custom Threads 2015 Limited, set up as a 100% owned Group subsidiary, acquired the goodwill and certain assets of an existing embroidery and clothing printing business in Basingstoke. A strategic addition to the Group’s range of services, it dovetails with the Supply Chain & Solutions services we provide and will enable Seabourne to offer to the clothing sector, additional bespoke services over and above the basic storage requirements.
In making the acquisition, Seabourne welcomes Bob Bailey to the Group. Bob has many years of experience within the industry and is looking forward to the opportunities afforded by the Group to develop the client base and increase the services offered.

As well as focusing on the expansion of Seabourne, Sir Clive Bourne also dedicated a lot of time to community projects. The creation of Mossbourne Academy in 2004 was the beginning of an ongoing commitment to raising educational achievement in Hackney. Built on the site of Hackney Downs boys’ school, the academy has achieved Ofsted’s rating of ‘outstanding’, and has seen students achieve places in high ranking universities such as Cambridge. Lady Joy Bourne was involved in the planning of the school with Sir Clive Bourne, and still takes an active role in the school’s development as a governor. Check out this video, click here to view.
