Works has begun on a new £1 million warehouse facility for Thirsk-based chemical processing business, Cod Beck Blenders.
The expansion at the company’s purpose-built facility in Dalton was facilitated by a grant from the Let’s Grow Regional Growth Fund.
Cod Beck Blender is adding almost 50% to its current storage capacity creating a further 1,450 pallet spaces.
The new warehouse will feature a combination of standard pallet racking and drive-in high storage density racking to provide flexibility to service both small and large customers as well as maximising space.
Construction work is scheduled for completion in early September and the facility expected to be operational a few weeks later.
MD Steven Meyer said: “The increased capacity allows us to continue to service our current customers’ needs as well as allowing for further growth and is a demonstration to our ongoing commitment to our Dalton site.”
The Let’s Grow programme provides grant support for capital investment projects that will create new, sustainable jobs in North Yorkshire, the City of York and the East Riding of Yorkshire.
Grant support is available for business expansion and diversification and is designed to help firms to expand their operations or to set up new establishments in the region.
