Independent distributor, SDL Minorfern has started the New Year on an expansion drive with the purchase of a head office and distribution warehouse at Clay Cross, Chesterfield. The new 40,000 sq. ft site, known as Holland House, also includes a large loading bay for articulated lorries and freight in shipping containers.
Founded in 1978, SDL Minorfern, employs 260 people and operates nine branches across Derbyshire, Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and Staffordshire.
Holland House, which also includes a retail branch, is three times bigger than the factor’s previous headquarters that were also located at Clay Cross.
SDL Minorfern MD, Nick Holland said: “The purchase of our new headquarters marks a formative milestone in the development of the company – and is instrumental in our growth targets and increasing efficiency”.
The funding was provided by Yorkshire Bank and commercial agent HLW Keeble Hawson did the conveyancing.
