Accrington-based North-West Logistics Ltd have invested in new premises to accommodate their continued business growth in Altham Business Park, Altham, Accrington.

A member of the Fortec Distribution Network, the company has invested in a 100,000 sq ft warehouse, with an additional 20,000 sq ft of office space. They have also built a new 120,000 sq ft vehicle park along-side the building. The warehouse is five times bigger than their previous premises, and they are able to park up to eighty HGV’s on the new vehicle park. The move was financed by HSBC Bank, together with a Regional Grant Fund. Stephen Dunn, Director of North West Logistics, said the funding has helped to secure the long-term future of the company.

He said: “We consolidated when the recession hit the UK, expecting to have to cut costs and weather the storm, but in reality we actually continued to grow – albeit at a slower rate – and eventually the space just wasn’t big enough for us.

“We have several customers who require ongoing storage and distribution services, and the new site enables us to do this on a larger scale. The building has six modern loading doc entrances, capable of accommodating any height of vehicle, and two drive through entrances directly into the building.

It also allows us to introduce more services including pick and pack and other warehousing services in the future.”
