Frozen food specialist, Yearsley Group, has refurbished its flagship Grimsby depot; adding an additional 6,000 square feet of ambient space to cope with rising demands for dry goods.
The £500,000 investment takes the available depot storage capacity to 65,000 square feet. The extra space generated by the refurbishment allows for more than 7,500 pallet spaces to be used for non-frozen food items and electrical goods.
The new space complements the existing 40,000 square feet frozen warehouse. According to Global Chain News, Yearsley is confident that existing customers will want to invest in both sections of the storage facilities.
Harry Yearsley, managing director of Yearsley Group, believes that the new facility will appeal to both importers and their respective logistics consultancy firms. This is because it will offer both variety for storage and ease of access.
"We store and distribute a lot of frozen stock on behalf of local manufacturers and importers using the Humber ports, and we realised many of them also have a requirement for dry goods storage," he said, according to RoadTransport.com.
"Rather than split their deliveries - taking on additional contracts, management time and road miles - we took a decision to invest in our facility in order to offer that additional service to our customers," he added.
