24 Apr Our new HQ and warehouse is ‘major vote of confidence’
The official opening of our new £3 million headquarters and warehouse is a “major vote of confidence” in Wrexham, according to the town’s AM – Lesley Griffiths AM, Minister for Environment, Energy and Rural Affairs.
Cutting the ribbon at our new state-of-the-art complex, Ms Griffiths said: “This brand new distribution centre is simply amazing and it’s a major vote of confidence in Wrexham which underlines our credentials as the economic powerhouse of North Wales.
“The height of the building is spectacular and it is jam packed with the very latest equipment and racking to store all kinds of goods, including food ingredients.
“The operation is 24/7 during the week and not surprisingly they are already attracting new customers.
“McCarthy Distribution are an ambitious company and they have plans to continue growing and provide valuable employment for local people.”
Mike McCarthy launched the ambitious eight-month build last year in response to increasing demand for warehouse space from firms moving their products around the UK and importing goods from overseas.
The large building, set on a four-and-a-half-acre plot just across the road from our existing offices, can house 11,000 pallet spaces to cater for dozens of daily shipments for companies throughout the UK and abroad. It is thought to be one of the tallest warehouses in North Wales.
The new building has 42,000 square feet of warehouse space and an additional 15,000 square foot canopy area outside where vehicles load and unload. There is also 6,500 square feet of modern office space given over to our administrative teams including customer service, finance, HR and quality control departments.
