MP opens Oakland’s £3m depot

Redditch, UK:  Bromsgrove MP, Sajid Javid, officially opened multi-temperature supply chain specialist Oakland International’s new warehouse at Beoley in Redditch last week. The warehouse is the final stage of the company’s £3m investment programme supported by Barclays Corporate.

Dean Attwell, managing director, Oakland International said: “This is a huge step forward for our business and is testimony to the great work of the Oakland team, our customers and our supplier partnerships – without their passion and commitment to Oakland, investment decisions of this magnitude would not be possible.”

The 5,000m2 warehouse provides an additional 8,000 pallet spaces and incorporates a deep-chill storage chamber to support seasonal requirements, as well as specialist storage for year-round supply chain solutions, extending Oakland the opportunity to accommodate organic growth of existing clients and work with even greater numbers of producers and manufacturers wishing to gain access to the competitive retailer market.

Dean said the new warehouse extended capabilities, and “allowed us to retain and improve our competitive offer, whilst supporting planned growth”.
