Fowler Welch wins new contract with Wensleydale Creamery

Washington, Tyne and Wear, UK: Fowler Welch has secured a new contract with Wensleydale Creamery, the maker of the Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese.

Fowler Welch will provide the cheesemaker with bulk storage for its maturing cheese, as well as distribution services between two of its manufacturing sites in Hawes and near Ripon, North Yorkshire.

The new contract was awarded following a full tender process after the customer identified a need for storage of around 1500 pallets, split between ambient and temperature-controlled environments.

Fowler Welch’s fully BRC Accredited facility in Washington (AA standard) has the capacity to store and distribute both temperature regimes under one roof.

Georgina Parker, supply chain manager for Wensleydale Creamery, said: “Not only does the dual-temperature facility suit our needs perfectly, the team have gone above and beyond to provide a solution for us. We are incredibly impressed by the service so far and look forward to working with the team, especially during the busy festive season.”

Fowler Welch has invested in the site as part of the contract, not only in the storage and racking equipment but also the infrastructure.

Nick Hay, chief executive at Fowler Welch, said: “We pride ourselves on delighting the customer, which is why we invest in our sites and new technologies, and how we successfully build long-lasting relationships with our clients.”
