Haulage and storage company Grocontinental has opened a £5m 43,000 sq ft warehouse at its headquarters in Whitchurch, Shropshire.
The facility will increase its frozen storage capacity by 13,000 pallets and will take the total storage capacity up to 143,000 pallets. Food products will be stored at a temperature of as low as -28°c in the new facility.
David Grocott, Grocontinental’s joint managing director said: “The new warehouse is part of our £12 million investment programme for 2013 which will also see the renewal of our entire vehicle fleet to keep pace with the latest in vehicle technology and economy.”
The warehouse has been built by construction contractor Chalcroft.
