Investment Creates New Jobs At Stoke-on-Trent Logistics Company

Posted by | Highgate & Ravensdale, News | No Comments

Stoke-on-Trent based logistics company, Browns Distribution, has constructed a new 30,000 sq. ft. warehouse at its Tunstall headquarters increasing the size of its current premises by 10%.

The £1.6 million investment also includes modernising technology and upgrading their infrastructure. It has also seen their staff numbers rise to 90, an increase of 13. This expansion of the company’s capacity will create the need for four new Scania Topline units and six Deker trailers.

Managing director David Brown Junior said: “We decided we wanted to invest in infrastructure to provide both existing and new clients with the opportunity to increase their storage and freight.

“We looked at different areas and premises around the city, but eventually we decided that it would be best to develop our existing site with a new warehouse.

“Business is doing very well at the moment so we want to continue to invest in infrastructure in the future.”

David added: “Competition is fierce in this industry and it is very fast-paced, but there are very few companies who are doing what we are doing. We are a full-service provider and that is what clients are looking for more and more.

“We will continue to grow and as we grow we will create more employment opportunities for the local area. The next few years are looking very promising.”

Daniel Griffiths, communications executive at Browns, said: “We are a family-run firm and are very proud to be based in Stoke-on-Trent and I believe that our recent expansion demonstrates our commitment to the area.”

Phase 2 of Highgate, Stoke-on-Trent To Commence

Posted by | Highgate & Ravensdale | No Comments

CWC Group recently acquired 30 acres of development land, part of the former Highgate works in Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent in the Ceramic Valley Enterprise Zone. Phase 1 of the project saw the creation of a 100,000 sq. ft. Distribution Centre for Tile Mountain. Work will now commence on development of the rest of the site.

Marc Freeman, director at CWC Group, said: “We have made a substantial investment in acquiring 30 acres of development land in Stoke-on-Trent, knowing there were occupiers in the area looking for high quality buildings.

“The construction of 100,000 square foot for Tile Mountain has been a fantastic start and we are committed to bring forward the rest of land for development as soon as we can.

“We are in discussions with a wide variety of occupiers who have been drawn to the site due to the great access, the enterprise zone benefits, and our proactive approach in bringing land and buildings forward quickly.”

Andrew Groves, director at agents Harris Lamb, added: “This speculative project is an exciting development for Stoke-on-Trent and one that we believe will be well received following on-going concerns about the shortage of industrial stock in recent months.”
