The six month project to create additional warehousing facilities at the purpose-built eight acre site in North Yorkshire is now complete.
The company’s operation has been expanded with the addition of a new 975m2 warehouse and access road, supported by a grant from the Let’s Grow Regional Growth Fund. A further 10 jobs have been created as a result, increasing the total workforce to 130 employees.
Almost 50% has been added to the former storage capacity, creating a further 1,450 pallet spaces. The new warehouse features a combination of standard pallet racking and drive-in high storage density racking, providing the flexibility to service both small and large customers as well as maximising space.
Working across a wide range of sectors, Cod Beck Blender serves blue chip clients in the pharmaceutical, agricultural, agrochemical, horticultural and fine chemical industries. The business was established in 1988 and now has a 100-strong team.
Steven Meyer, managing director, explains: “With demand for our services from both existing and new customers continuing to grow, we needed to increase our capacity by enlarging our storage facilities. The ability to choose from small order picking to storage of large volumes of raw materials, gives us greater flexibility, helping us to plan production more efficiently. It will also improve our plant effectiveness and enable us to respond quickly to our customers’ changing needs.
“What’s more, the expansion also gives us room for future growth as we continue to invest in our North Yorkshire site.”
