Norbert in multi-million hazardous investment

Norbert Dentressangle is making a multi-million pound investment to extend and upgrade its Euroterminal site on Trafford Park in Manchester where it handles hazardous goods.

The 200,000 sq ft Euroterminal is currently a Top Tier COMAH  warehouse, and Dentressangle is increasing racking density to  increase capacity by 40 per cent, creating an additional 8,000 pallet spaces.

It plans to establish a new area for the storage of up to 6,000 pallets of medical and pharmaceutical products and expects to obtain an MHRA Wholesalers License for this purpose early in the New Year.

Karl Hudson, regional general manager for Norbert Dentressangle’s COMAH operations said: “Increasing the capacity of the site, along with the range of products we can handle, is a highly complex process and involves upgrading a whole host of ancillary facilities and equipment in line with the latest COMAH Regulations.”

The work is due for completion in February 2013.
