Burnley Bridge DC for Fagan & Whalley

Fagan & Whalley has taken a 92,000 sq ft unit at Burnley Bridge Business Park to complement its existing facilities in Padiham and Coventry.

The distribution centre is on a ten-acre site and will provide parking for up to 80 trailers, with 10 loading bays and 25,000 pallet locations.

Stephen Fagan, commercial director at Fagan & Whalley, said: “There is a distinct lack of suitable accommodation on the M65 corridor and Burnley Bridge offered exactly what we wanted, with the added bonus of it being just one junction down the motorway from our existing operations facility and company headquarters and remains at the heart of our long-standing customer base.

“This extra capacity will enable us to provide a more efficient service to our customers in the UK and abroad and we’re looking forward to getting underway with the build programme so we can commence operations at the facility in the middle of 2017.

The unit is the final plot of phase 1 on the scheme which has been developed by Leeds-based Eshton.
