Potter Logistics has been awarded a five year contract with ASK Chemicals. The contract, worth £500,000, involves the storage and handling of a mixture of flammable substances and other hazardous goods at Potter’s Droitwich distribution centre.
Up to 600 tonnes per month of ASK products will be delivered to the Droitwich DC where they will be stored within a 40,000 sq ft storage facility designed for highly flammable liquids.
As part of the contract Potter has extended existing available office space at the site by nearly 2,000 sq ft. This refurbished building has become the new ASK headquarters. It includes offices for sales/admin alongside a research and development laboratory.
Philip Vernon, managing director of ASK Chemicals, said: “Potter has already demonstrated its professionalism and ability to handle our product range. I am therefore very confident that we are heading towards a strong and growing partnership.”
