Turners expands with Browns Chilled Distribution purchase

Newmarket, Suffolk, UK: Turners (Soham) has completed the acquisition of Browns Chilled Distribution.

This £35 million turnover operation was owned by Simon and Andrew Brown and includes the former David Andrew Transport business. It is based on a 27-acre site at Bicker near Spalding. Browns operates 120 vehicles, delivering to supermarkets, food processors and wholesale markets.

The business strengthens Turners presence in the Spalding area where it already has a refrigerated transport depot at Quadring and the former Fruitex wholesale market operation at Donington. The storage and cross-docking facilities at Browns will enable Turners to expand its activities in the local area whilst reinforcing its position nationally in the refrigerated transport sector.

Managing director Paul Day says: “Browns has developed its business by providing excellent service to its customers and we are excited by the opportunities this purchase presents for the group. We are committed to driving this business forward and maintaining the traditions of this successful family-owned business.”
