MP Margaret Hodge has visited the Coca-Cola Enterprises sustainable warehouse at Voltaic in Dagenham, operated by Howard Tenens.
The 233,000 sq ft facility will service the Olympic park during 2012, and has environmentally friendly features such as 15 per cent skylights providing natural light reducing electricity usage.
Hodge said, “I was so impressed by this fantastic operation. It is going to make a brilliant and essential contribution to the Olympics during 2012. It’s also great to see Howard Tenens, a successful family business, working in the Borough in partnership with Coca-Cola Enterprises Ltd.”
