Tea and coffee pours into Teesport

[ December 5, 2013   //   ]

PD Ports has secured a new ten year contract with one of its most important customers, tea and coffee specialists Taylors of Harrogate. It will include a £1.75m refurbishment of PD Ports’ 115,000sq ft warehousing facilities at Billingham, near Teesport. Work commenced on refurbishing the existing facilities at the end of the summer and is expected to be operational by mid 2014.

Taylors of Harrogate has seen significant growth since first importing tea and coffee into Teesport five years ago. Contract manager, David Hinks, said: “The acquisition of new refurbished premises at Billingham is a vital part of our future growth plans and will result in even greater efficiencies for us as we continue to expand. We are also delighted to be supporting PD Ports’ own investment plans in Teesside and its hinterland.”
