Following recent acquisitions, the company has expanded its warehousing operations with the addition of Mile Thorn Works (Halifax) and Perseverance Works (Elland), and now offers six depots across Halifax, Goole Grangemouth and Bradford.

The new acquisitions mean the company can accommodate all types of cargo from heavy lift abnormal loads through to standard pallets.

Just under a mile from its long-established Halifax Headquarters, Mile Thorn Works offers 3,224 square metres of secure internal storage.

This facility has two 20 tonne and two 10 tonne capacity gantry cranes, and offers drive in roller shutter access allowing cargo to be directly offloaded from the trailer.
