Henderson opens cold store warehouse in Northern Ireland

Mallusk, Northern Ireland: Henderson Foodservice has opened a US$23m (£14m) warehouse in Mallusk, Northern Ireland, in response to sales growth of nearly 40% since 2007. The 11,613sq m warehouse includes a 2,924sq m cold store with  frozen, ambient and chilled warehousing.

Damien Barrett, managing director of Henderson Foodservice, says the new sites will allow the company to centralise resources.

Allen McInnes, Project Manager, says: “The new build cold store will contain a brand new state-of-the-art refrigeration plant, with cooling provided via a 100m deep cooling water bore hole.

“The new facility also integrated several energy-saving systems, designed to lower its carbon footprint. Eco measures include the re-use of heat from compressors and refrigerators to fuel roof space and under-floor heating systems and temperature-control doors on the cold stores; efficient motion-sensitive lighting systems, hot water generated by the air-conditioning system and individually monitored electricity and water meters, plus recycling facilities throughout the building.”
