East, west, Hull’s best

[ February 19, 2014   //   ]

Hull-based Neill & Brown Global Logistics is investing £2.5m in a new 40,000 sq ft warehouse at Marfleet Environmental Technology Park with the help of 20% funding from the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership’s Growing the Humber fund. The money is part of the £30m allocated to the Humber LEP from the Government’s Regional Growth Fund.

Work has already started on the site, which is scheduled to be operational by September and will include storage and distribution facilities as well as additional loading bays.

CEO peter Brown said the new east Hull facility will complement its 80,000 sq ft at its head office in Hessle and would give it a presence on either side of the city. It would also be a benefit when work started on the Castle Street section of the A63.

Neill & Brown managing director, Colin Moody, added that the new warehouse would help develop export and import work to and from Europe: “We already have a thriving European business and can see the potential for further development. The new site will give us the ability to provide an enhanced service to our existing customers and the edge in gaining new work due to increased capacity and proximity to the ports.”
