DBL opens Sheffield site

DBL Logistics has opened a 33,500 sq ft flagship warehouse and office building in Sheffield, which is the company’s first independently owned building.

The new facility, on Tinsley Park Road, has been named after Benjamin Huntsman, the inventor and manufacturer of crucible steel, as it is located at the site of one of his former factories.

It will double DBL’s capacity to 6,000 pallets, and support its continued growth.

“We have further plans to expand the site by another 16,500ft in the future, so this is a really exciting time for us and the logistics sector in the Sheffield City Region,” said managing director, David Clarkson.

DBL has also increased its fleet from 15 to 25 vehicles, added two members of staff, and installed a new WMS, as part of the investment.
