Pall-Ex is continuing its expansion ambitions with its recent opening of an additional 120,000 sq ft state-of-the-art Northern hub in Rochdale.
A.D.D. Express Ltd, Pall-Ex shareholder and founder member, is leading the new operation which offers an accessible location for network members across the north and midlands.
The company has invested £1.4m in refurbishments and created 10 new jobs at the 16-door drive-through facility.
The new site will accommodate up to 4,000 pallets per night once it is operating at full capacity and is situated just minutes from Junction 21 of the M62.
Barry Byers, Pall-Ex’s UK managing director, said: “The opening of our new Northern Hub is an exciting step in Pall-Ex’s on-going journey and welcome news during what has been a challenging year for the sector.
“A.D.D. Express was the obvious choice for this partnership due to its exceptional track record and its impressive year on year growth.”
Dave Fairbrother, managing director at A.D.D. Express, said: “Rochdale is the perfect location for us to develop as it provides space to expand our fleet and grow with our customers.
“A.D.D. Express has been growing at a rate of 10% year on year for the last five years and that is all organic growth via word of mouth. For the first time we will be able to proactively grow our business.”
