History
Welton Transport Limited was founded in 1970 by M.B. Bean in the small village of Brough East Yorkshire (UK). The company is named after a village near Brough. At first M.B. Bean was looking for an European agent to take care of goods that needed to be moved from the continent into the United Kingdom.

He advertised for candidates through the sports section of the dutch newspaper “Algemeen Dagblad”. Ben Kleij responded to this advertisement and joined the company on the 1st of February 1972.

In 1974 M. B. Bean sold his shares to John Good Shipping located in Hull. In the meantime John Good, Ben Kleij and Michael Bean also founded Welton North Sea Trailers Limited. This company was included in the sale and this resulted in the imalgamation of the two companies Welton North Sea Trailers Limited Hull and Welton North Sea Trailers B.V.

After a long and successful relationship between the two companies of 35 years Ben Raijmond Kleij has now taken over the shares owned by John Good and is now 50% owner of Welton North Sea Trailers B.V. Welton North Sea Trailers Limited was liquidated after this buy out which now means that Welton North Sea Trailers B.V. is now owned by Kleij sr. and Kleij jr.
