S&W Wholesale has announced a new £15 million redevelopment project plan.
The Chancellors Road-based storage centre will house a new multi-purpose distribution hub, head-office space, and vehicle management and recycling areas, the company noted.
The redevelopment plan will almost double the company’s capacity, allowing its ‘continued vision for growth, [and to] improve its efficiencies and investment’ in both the business and the local area.
The company highlighted that the new facility will store its ambient, chilled, fresh and frozen products.
“Over the past number of years, we have experienced sustained growth, and this investment into the new multi-purpose site is aimed at facilitating this growth further, and to provide our employees with a better working environment, as well as providing a more efficient way of working across the entire business,” Michael Skelton, MD of S&W Wholesale, said.
According to the wholesaler, the site will become more eco-friendly, with the introduction of solar panels, electric car-charging points, and methods of reducing waste – reducing S&W’s carbon footprint for the future.
“We are committed to driving our footprint in the local community, with plans to build on our 250+ workforce and work alongside local business and organisations in making a real positive change in the local area and beyond,” Skelton said.
Aspects of the new facility are well under way, with a local architectural firm spearheading the cutting-edge design, the company added.
