To cater for a recent increase in orders and new business contracts, Downton is building a £1.5 million extension at its Quedgeley warehouse. The extension will add an extra 2,508 m2 to the facility, located on the Quedgeley West Business Park, Gloucestershire.
Downton already has 9,290 m2 of warehousing space on the site, which is used as a UK distribution centre for several clients.
The construction is being managed by local firm Barnwood Construction, based in Gloucester.
The expansion of the Quedgeley depot follows a major fleet investment. Last month Downton purchased 50 new tractor units and 60 new curtain-sided trailers in a series of deals worth in excess of £4.5 million.
