Hellmann Worldwide Logistics UK, the leading logistics solutions provider, has announced a large-scale investment in the warehouse and storage facilities at its headquarters in Lichfield, Staffordshire.

The expanded facilities at the site in Fradley Park will help Hellmann to cater for increasing volumes, which have experienced significant growth in recent years. As a result of the investment, a state-of-the-art racking system will be installed on the Lichfield site, providing 3500 new bin locations and the potential to extend this to over 7000 if volumes continue to rise. The area, which covers 2000 sq metres, will be utilised to service a number of high-profile logistics accounts, encompassing retail, automotive and IT clients.

Andreas Lohmeier, sales and development director for Hellmann Worldwide Logistics UK commented: “The decision to invest further in the facilities at Lichfield has been primarily driven by growing volumes experienced over recent years. Added to this, we are committed to providing the best possible service to all our clients and the new high-tech racking systems will help us to further enhance our service offering for both existing and future customers. Our facilities and our team have always been amongst the best in the industry at Lichfield, and I am confident this latest expansion will help us to continue offering the highest quality of service to our clientele.”
