Reed Boardall in Boroughbridge completes expansion to create UK's largest cold store
A multi-million pound year-long project to create the UK’s largest cold store in Boroughbridge has now been completed.
Reed Boardall has further expanded its dedicated, single site operation by adding a 110,000sq ft extension to the newest of four cold stores at the 55 acre site. The project, led by Leeds contractor Marshall (Building Contractors), makes it once again the most extensive and modern cold storage facility in the country.
Reed Boardall, which employs almost 800 staff in Boroughbridge, is one of the largest temperature-controlled food distribution businesses in the UK, storing and delivering frozen food from manufacturers across Britain and Europe to UK supermarkets. It delivers 12,000 pallets of frozen food daily for its clients.
“Having consistently served the UK food sector for over 25 years, our single site business model and ability to consolidate loads cost efficiently have proved well-suited to the needs of food processors and retailers across the UK. The extension to Cold Store 4 marks another important milestone in the company’s development.”
