Work has started on a £1 million extension to Welsh distribution firm McCarthy Group’s Wrexham headquarters.
This will increase the company’s warehousing capacity by 18,000ft², creating space for an additional 4,000 pallets. In addition, the space available for truck parking is set to double.
The 4.5-acre facility caters for daily shipments and provides storage space for UK-based and international companies.
Having only opened the site four years ago, the group’s Managing Director Mike McCarthy has decided to make growth a key target and feels that the extension will help support this goal. He said: “We are extremely busy because there’s increased demand for high-quality warehousing, particularly facilities with food grade accreditation like we have.”
McCarthy continued: “The opening of the first phase at Elm Point has paid dividends because it’s enabled us to attract new customers and that’s created a momentum of its own. It’s been a massive asset and the new extension will help us to build on that success.”
