Newton Aycliffe logistics firm Stiller Warehousing and Distribution has invested further in the company to create another huge new warehouse.
After opening a state-of-the-art, £2m freight distribution centre and office block at its 22-acre premises on Aycliffe Business Park last year, Stiller is now converting its former logistics centre into warehousing to meet rising demand.
The 50,000 sq ft warehouse has been fully refurbished and, when completed, will accommodate up to 6,000 pallets.
High-performance resin screed, recladding and LED lighting has brought the old building up to 21st Century standards as Stiller continues its hefty investment programme.
The firm spent £1.1m in a brand new 40,000 sq ft warehouse building in 2015, and in 2017 added another 40,000 sq ft extension to it, with both units creating space for more than 10,000 pallets of storage.
And just months after spending £1.7m on a fleet of new trucks, this latest development will increase Stiller’s capacity further still, and takes the firm’s total investment in property, facilities and people to £11m in the last four years.
