Magnavale Announce Construction of a Significant Expansion to their Warrington Cold Store.
We are extremely proud to announce we have secured both planning and funding to construct a significant expansion to their Warrington based Cold Storage facility.
The expansion will see an additional 8,000 pallet spaces added to Magnavale’s already large network and will provide additional capacity to accommodate the huge demand they have seen for their services, particularly for their Warrington Cold Store.
The increase in capacity will not only allow for extra volumes from current customers, it will also allow our Magnavale Warrington Cold Store to accommodate stock from new customers requiring Cold Storage and related services, as well as provide a >10% boost in employment opportunities at the site.
Magnavale Chief Operating Officer, Amanda Cogan commented,
“The additional 8,000 spaces are a much-needed expansion of our offering at Warrington. The ideal geographic positioning of Magnavale Warrington and the current high demand for our services, means space at the facility is a highly sought-after commodity. This expansion will allow us to offer more capacity to our existing customers and potentially onboard some new partners as well. We remain dedicated to our mission of improving our customers supply chains by cutting cost, risk and complication, and this is another step forward that allows us to live up to that ambition.”
Plant Based Storage at Magnavale
Following extensive consultations with our partners, we have decided to become the first cold store network in the UK to offer segregated, temperature controlled, storage solutions specifically for plant-based foods.
There is a growing interest within the UK to reduce meat consumption, with plant-based products becoming increasingly popular, therefore it’s incredibly important we continuously evaluate how we can evolve our operations, allowing us to supply the services our customers need to keep up-to-date with the market.
We see this specific operational process as an essential addition to the already large range of services we currently offer.
Across our 3 sites located in Chesterfield, Scunthorpe and Warrington, our services include temperature-controlled storage for various food products, blast freezing, labelling, microwave tempering and more, therefore adding plant-based storage will help drive forward our business objective of being able to facilitate a supply chain that is as short as possible and cuts cost, complexity and risk.
The products will be completely segregated from any other food products, within our various BRC AA Grade, temperature-controlled warehouses, while being treated with the up most care from our brilliant, fully trained, OV qualified technical team.
