Abbey Logistics Group has opened a warehouse operation in Bromborough, Wirral to service the requirements a global manufacturer on a long term deal.
Previously, Abbey partnered solely with Henry Diaper & Co in Knowsley to offer warehousing facilities and this relationship continues for customers with needs in that geographical area.
The warehouse on Plantation Road, Bromborough offers Abbey an initial 70,000ft2 of ambient warehouse space with the potential to increase this to 140,000ft2 and is the first for Abbey outside of the existing Henry Diaper & Co arrangement which offers up to 500,000ft2 of space.
UKWA Chairman, Tony Mohan, joins Abbey's Commercial Team on a part time basis to help deliver the strategy to grow the warehousing side of the Group's business over the next 5 years.
Steve Granite – Managing Director at Abbey said:
"Opening our own warehouse was a logical step in the company’s development and we are delighted to be doing this with such a prestigious customer on board. We’ve recruited Tony Mohan to help identify new opportunities for warehousing business across the UK and also a number of people from the warehousing industry to help run it operationally. Abbeys plan is to open more warehouses across the UK for new and existing clients. We have space available in the current Bromborough warehouse which we plan to fill first, then we’ll be looking for our next opportunity.”
