£2.5m Hull warehouse for Neill & Brown

Neill & Brown Global Logistics is investing £2.5 million in a 40,000 sq ft warehouse at Marfleet Environmental Technology Park, in Hull.

The site is scheduled to be operational by September this year, and will feature storage and distribution facilities, as well as additional loading bays.

“We already have a thriving European business and can see the potential for further development,” said Neill & Brown managing director, Colin Moody.

“The new site will give us the ability to provide an enhanced service to our existing customers and the edge in gaining new work due to increased capacity and proximity to the ports.”

Chief executive officer Peter Brown added: “Neill & Brown’s success can be attributed, in no small part, to its location and the people of Hull, and we want to contribute to the future prosperity of the city in as many ways as we can.”

The company teamed up with the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership, to work on the new facility which it says will enhance service to existing customers and support its own growth plan.

The Humber LEP awarded Neill & Brown 20 per cent of the overall investment, on condition it created jobs for the area over a three-year period.

The company is also supporting Hull’s City of Culture bid, through the Angel scheme, for which it is donating £17,000 over the next four years.
