SUSPENSION WAREHOUSE SPRINGS UP


Suspension brand Lesjöfors Springs has relocated to a  new purpose-built UK distribution centre at Lindley Moor Road, Huddersfield.

The new facility measures 65,000 sq ft, offering almost 50% more storage capacity than its previous premises, with improved transport links to the motorway network and easy access for heavy goods vehicles as it is right next to the M62.

Robert Glynn, Managing Director of Lesjöfors Springs UK, said: “We continue on a ‘journey of improvement’ and this new facility means customers will experience even greater levels of service”.

“The increased space, improved materials handling and warehouse management solutions, position us well to maintain our 99% service rate and to meet whatever demands the market throws at us, whilst allowing us to remain competitive through efficiencies.”

The new unit has potential to extend the warehouse by a further 15,000 sq ft  should the need arise.

Febi warehouse is almost completed

Building is nearing completion at Markham Vale for Blue Print’s new distribution centre, which on completion, could create up to 400 aftermarket jobs.

Parent company Ferdinand Bilstein UK’s new purpose-built centre is almost 213,000 sq ft, and is built as part of a large industrial estate that also contains the Andrew Page distribution centre. The whole area is built over former mine works and is part of a plan by local government to regenerate the area.

Initial building was completed in January, with racking and a witron system being installed over the first few months of 2017. On completion, the new site will replace the former the Bilstein operation in Pontefract.

Paul Dodgson, Operations Director at Ferdinand Bilstein UK, said: “We are excited about being part of this high profile development. Initial building has finished at the Markham Vale site and we look forward to seeing things progress”.

Commercial property builder Henry Boot Developments is building the centre.
