New depot for Alan Firmin

Palletforce member Alan Firmin is moving to a bespoke depot at Kemsley in Kent in March after outgrowing its existing site at Snodland.

“We have spent two years finding the right location, planning the site and building it to our own specification because we wanted to be sure we were creating a depot that works not only now but for the future,” said Michael Firmin.

The majority of the six acre site will be used as yard space and the whole area will include a two storey office block, a warehouse, a covered loading area, a dedicated trailer servicing bay and extensive trailer parking facilities.

Alan Firmin were established in 1928 as a family-run business and today the second and third generation remain involved in running the firm, which has a fleet of 70 vehicles and 130 trailers.
