Depot expansion investment – Spalding, Lincs.
Our purpose built depot at Spalding in Lincolnshire has provided us with the means to grow and service our customer base since leaving Wisbech in 2016. To meet the needs of the business, as both ourselves and our industry develop, we are expanding the site to ensure it is ready for the future.
In addition to more than doubling the size of the depot, there are a number of features and systems that will further enhance the capabilities of the operation. These include a wholly enclosed loading and unloading bay with weather proof roller doors plus speed doors to the interior of the build to keep the weather at bay – a one-way system around the building to ensure both safety and smooth operation of the site – redesigning the internal storage layout to maximise capacity and efficiency – further investment in digital systems for stock management and the combination of paperless EPOD deliveries with real-time delivery tracking.
Plans drawn up over the last 12 months are now to be made real. Ground was broken in unexpectedly clement weather (unlike Marden last year!) and the real work begins. We will be posting updates regularly, both here and on Twitter and Linked In, so you can follow the journey of the continuing investment and improvement we aim for. Opposite is a teaser of what is to come.
