Controlled-temperature logistics specialist Langdons has announced a major investment in the Midlands this year.

For nearly eight years the company’s base in the region has been a rented chill store in Redditch. Whilst adequate, the pallet throughput capacity at this site is very limited and so the company have been seeking alternative premises for some time.

After failing to find any available suitable existing premises in the area, Langdons have purchased a disused factory in the Park Farm district of Redditch which has now been demolished.

A new building is now under construction which when complete in late July or August this year, will have storage capacity for 3500 pallets of frozen food and 1600 pallets of chilled foods. The site will have a large chilled marshalling area accessed by 13 dock-levelled doors. In total the investment at Redditch will be in excess of £8M.

As well as covering collections and deliveries throughout the Midlands region the new site will become the central hub of the eight depot Langdons network. Articulated vehicles connect all these depots overnight, thereby providing a next day delivery service for palletised frozen and chilled foods throughout almost all of the UK mainland. The company also offers services to and from Ireland and as part of the Nagel Group of Germany Langdons are able to connect with the EU – wide network operated by Nagel.
