Specflue to open new Northern depot

Nigel Kitching, Specflue’s northern depot manager
Specflue has announced that its new northern depot will be in Castlefield, West Yorkshire.

Located just off junction 31 of the M62, the building will provide 20,000 square feet of warehouse space, a trade counter and ample customer parking. The new facility has created 12 new jobs and allows Specflue to offer businesses in northern England and Scotland an improved service that equals what is already being enjoyed by its customers in the south. Through its fleet of service vehicles, it will provide a next day service between the north Midlands and the Scottish border. There are also plans in the pipeline, to have a further base in Livingston, West Lothian that can service most of mainland Scotland.

Nigel Kitching, who lives in Outwood, Wakefield has been appointed as Depot Manager. He joins the business with 25 years of warehousing and distribution experience, having worked with companies such as Next, Asda, Morrisons and dhl.

Nigel and his team will be working hard over the next couple of months to get the depot ready and deliveries will start from week commencing 30 June. He said: “This is a fantastic opportunity and the team and I cannot wait to get started! The success of Specflue in the South is a real indicator of the success we will achieve with the new depot.”
