Fagan & Whalley expand warehousing capacity

Fagan & Whalley opens new depot in Blackburn

Lancashire-based haulier Fagan & Whalley (F&W) has opened a new 200,000 sq. ft depot at Frontier Park in Blackburn.

The expansion of the warehousing and distribution capacity of the business follows a recent restructuring of the company.

F&W Business Strategy Director, Sam Fagan, explained: “When reviewing our performance for the past 12 months, it soon came to light that both our warehousing and cross-dock operations have been operating at capacity for some time. 

“Following our recent company restructure, which has been put into place in order to facilitate further growth, it was decided that additional space would need to be integrated into our existing infrastructure in order to achieve our plans for future expansion.”

With new and existing clients scheduled to move stock into the site this month, plans are already underway to install VNA and wide aisle pallet racking, ensuring the depot remains as flexible as possible for changing customer requirements.

Fagan continued: “Our Burnley Bridge warehouse was built specifically to our own specifications and brought into the operation back in September 2017. It’s a point of pride for us to be able to look back over the last three years and see how much the warehousing side of the business has grown. 

“We’re excited to be able to welcome on board new clients and watch our warehousing and distribution services continue to grow over the next few years,” Fagan added.
