Seamless Logistics: Pullum Sports Role in Equipping Training Venues

The project presented a considerable logistical challenge but Pullum demonstrated exceptional organisational skills and efficiency by overseeing installations in various locations across the country. From bustling cities like Newcastle, Manchester, Leeds, Swansea and Brighton to Plymouth, their dedicated installation teams went above and beyond the call of duty, working tirelessly they often completed up to 4 site installs in a single day. The magnitude of the operation was most evident at the largest venues, seamlessly delivering Eleiko platforms, racks, benches and their world renowned bars and discs. In addition to all this Eleiko equipment, Pullum also provided their own essential equipment such as Leg Press and Glute/Ham benches, Keiser Bikes, Concept rowers, Inotec gym machines, and Intenza treadmills.
