Investment and expansion plans for Samuel Grant Packaging
30 March 2021
INVESTMENT AND expansion plans announced by Samuel Grant Packaging include a new 40,000ft2 distribution and stockholding warehouse in the Logic Leeds logistics hub.
Neighbouring the Thorne’s Farm location of their current headquarters, the 110 acre Logic Leeds is located by Junction 45 of the M1. Samuel Grant Packaging will be joining the likes of Amazon, John Lewis and Premier Farnell, who have also set up significant distribution centres there.
During the pandemic Samuel Grant Packaging has been operating at full capacity, providing complete packaging solutions to the supply chain throughout the UK. Many packaging materials have been in short supply, largely due to the unprecedented demand in packaging for online deliveries, especially cardboard.
Samuel Grant has the buying power to be able to purchase and store huge amounts of packaging materials on behalf of its customers, so that their clients don’t see any downturn in production themselves due to shortages. They have managed to circumnavigate the nationwide packaging supply challenges, and continued to provide an unrivalled service.
Andrew Grant, joint managing director, says: “Packaging stockholding and distribution is now more valuable than ever in the supply chain, with many packaging materials having experienced shortages over the last year. As the North’s biggest distributor it’s important that we have enough space to continue to grow, and we have every confidence that the demand for our services will see us fill the new warehouse very quickly.”
The new warehouse expansion comes in the year that Samuel Grant Packaging celebrates its 130th anniversary and on the back of its investment in a EUMOS certified pallet stability testing centre.
