Yearsley acquires Hams Hall

Coleshill, West Midlands, UK: Yearsley Group has purchased the business and assets of Partner Logistics Hams Hall Ltd following the operation of the business on licence from July.

Yearsley acquired the freehold of the Hams Hall warehouse – an 8,000sq metre automated cold storage facility at Coleshill– which it has run for the past three months from Ropemaker Properties.

Yearsley Group’s newest cold store at Hams Hall

Harry Yearsley, managing director, said: “The location of this cold store could not be better for consolidating stock from around the UK and abroad, and delivering into many of the leading retailers NDCs.

“Consolidation of stock from manufacturers not only makes for more efficient delivery into major retail and food service organisations, it also contributes to reducing carbon output. We are forecasting that Hams Hall will be 60% full by March 2013.”

Yearsley Group now has 13 regional depots, a national pallet capacity exceeding 320,000 and a fleet of more than 300 temperature-controlled vehicles.

The acquisition comes 3 months after Yearsley Group began work on the expansion of its Heywood headquarters to create a northern ‘superhub’ to meet demand for new contracts, which will increase capacity by a further 40,000 to 80,000 pallets by next year.
