Leading animal health and equestrian products wholesaler, Trilanco, is delighted to announce the start of an exciting new chapter in the company’s history: its relocation to a new purpose built facility.
The silver spade ceremony to mark the official start of the seven million pound project was held with key members of Trilanco and Barnfield after months of planning and negotiations.
Trilanco’s new facility will be located at Mill Farm in Kirkham, which is around six miles from its current base.
The new distribution centre and offices will occupy a six acre site and will boast a 110,000 square foot warehouse that will house in excess of 12,000 product lines that are stocked by the company.
The new facility will support Trilanco’s continued expansion and could also support the employment of up to 30 new team members in the future.
“We’re so pleased to be able to share this news with people as it’s been in the planning stages for some time,” says Martin Balmer, Managing Director of Trilanco. “We’ve been looking for the perfect site to move to for a while now as our ever increasing product range, customer base and the level of business we’re doing means we’ve outgrown our current location and need more space.
The new facility, which is currently being built, is a significant investment for us at some seven million pounds, but it’s going to help us to continue to improve, grow and support our customers throughout the UK and beyond.
Being able to build exactly what we want from the ground up also has significant advantages. We’re really excited about this next phase – it’ll be a big change as we’ve been at our current location since 1981, but we can’t wait.” The new site is due to be completed by the end of 2016.
To keep customers, suppliers and interested parties fully informed of the latest developments, the company has set up a blog documenting the build and relocation process.
