Northern Ireland-based S&W Wholesale has revealed details of a new site.

The 20-acre site which is funded with an investment of more than £15m will be home to a new multi-purpose distribution hub, Head Office Space, vehicle management area and recycling area.

The new state of the art storage centre will boast 180,000 sq ft hosting all ambient, chilled, fresh and frozen products all under one roof.

This redevelopment plan aims to almost double in capacity to help achieve the group’s “vision for growth, improve efficiencies and investment in both the business and local area”.

The site will become more eco-friendly focused with the introduction of solar panels, electric car charging points and methods of reducing waste -reducing S&W’s carbon footprint for the future.

S&W Wholesale managing director Michael Skelton said: “Over the past number of years we have experienced sustained growth and this investment into the new multi-purpose site is aimed at facilitating this growth further and to provide our employees with a better working environment but as well as providing a more efficient way of working across the entire business.”

“We are committed to driving our footprint in the local community with plans to build on our 250+ workforce and work alongside local business and organizations in making a real positive change in the local area and beyond.”
