Brakes Group plans new Reading warehouse

Reading, Berkshire, UK: Food supplier Brakes Group has confirmed it will move into a new 19,000sq metre temperature-controlled warehouse in Suttons Business Park, East Reading.

The chilled warehouse will be built on the site made available by the demolition of the old Suttons Seeds building, more recently the home of Jacobs engineering.

Harriet Rodgers, spokeswoman for Brakes, said: “The new building will be a state-of-the-art storage and multi-temperature delivery hub.

“Approximately 500 people will be employed at the new depot, with the majority of the team working in the warehouse or delivering to customers.”

Sutton Business Park manager Standard Life Investments will build the warehouse which Brakes has agreed to lease for 25 years.
