A new Dragons Den season starts soon with a new dragon on board. Hilary Devey started Pall-Ex in 1995 and back then it was a one truck, one woman, pallet exchange business. She initially signed up 35 haulier members, enabling Hilary to cover the length and breadth of the UK. Now her multi-million pound empire distributes up to 9000 pallets a day from its central hub in Leicestershire. Today she has set her sights on even bigger goals, and as CEO is currently overseeing Pall-Ex’s pan-European expansion.
