Brexit stockpiling leads Glasswells to enlarge warehouse in Moreton Hall, Bury St Edmunds
Glasswells has doubled the pallet storage capacity of its warehouse in Bury St Edmunds in response to customers 'stockpiling ahead of Brexit'.
The business, which celebrates its 75th anniversary this year, had a 'busy autumn period'.
Their base in Moreton Hall has now been equipped to fit an extra 1,500 pallet positions, doubling the overall capacity.
Paul Glasswell, managing director, said: "Some of our biggest customers store things like packaging for food, grouting compound, grass seed and agricultural netting to protect soft fruits, and clearly these companies were building up stock prior to Brexit, with their production levels exceeding supply.
"We had to do something quite rapidly to accommodate the needs of these customers; otherwise we were in danger of their storage being moved."
