£2m warehouse plan for AKW

Logistics provider AKW has invested £1.92million in expanding its premises on Trafford Park.

It has increased its storage capacity by over 90,000 square feet by purchasing four new warehouses at Westbrook Park from industrial property specialists SEGRO.

AKW chairman Tony Worthington said that this investment will enable the company to drive its turnover beyond £20million.

“This investment combined with other further investments in vehicles and trailers will help to create jobs in the area and help secure an exciting future and opportunities for the business and all its employees,” said Tony Worthington.

The new premises take the total area of warehousing owned or leased by AKW on Trafford Park to over 700,000 square feet.

This investment follows a £750,000 spend by AK Worthington, the transport arm of the AKW Group, on 40 new trailers to take the total in its fleet to over 100.
