County Durham logistics firm Stiller Warehousing and Distribution has invested further in the company to create another huge new warehouse.
After opening a state-of-the-art, £2m freight distribution centre and office block at its 22-acre premises on Aycliffe Business Park last year, Stiller is now converting its former logistics centre into warehousing to meet rising demand.
The 50,000 sq ft warehouse has been fully refurbished and, when completed, will accommodate up to 6,000 pallets.
And just months after spending £1.7m on a fleet of new trucks, this latest development will increase Stiller’s capacity further still, and takes the firm’s total investment in property, facilities and people to £11m in the last four years.
Local contractors are being used in the fit-out of the latest new facility, with Bishop Auckland firm G Smith Electrical supplying the lighting, and they have been helped by a grant provided by Durham County Council’s BEEP energy programme.
Local firm Scott and Scott is providing the cladding and racking, while Newton Aycliffe based Kolorspray has also been drafted in to re-paint internal areas.
