Reed Boardall plans cold store growth to 168000 pallets
05 January 2021
Temperature controlled food storage and distribution business Reed Boardall is continuing to invest in expansion at its North Yorkshire facility.
In line with its pre-Covid plans, the North Yorkshire-based company has undertaken work on an extension to one of the cold stores at its 55 acre site in Boroughbridge, increasing capacity to 168,000 pallets.
The business operates four cold stores at its single Boroughbridge site, and has undertaken work on a 110,000 sq ft extension to its newest cold store facility. The build programme to extend Cold Store 4 is expected to be completed in March 2021.
Reed Boardall chief executive Marcus Boardall said: “Having already decided that the time was right to invest in expanding our cold storage facility at Boroughbridge, we were committed to moving forward with the project, undeterred by the turmoil of the pandemic which put intense pressure on the logistics sector – 2020 was a stark reminder of how important it is to have a robust and responsive supply chain.”
Finance director Sarah Roberts added: “Given the current situation, with unprecedented demand from consumers for frozen food, we are prepared for 2021 to be another extremely busy year and would like to thank our hard working and committed team for pulling out all the stops to help our customers keep the supermarket freezers full.”
