A SCOTS distribution company is looking to further its growth with the opening of a new logistics centre in Renfrewshire.
With the new centre offering Bullet Express increased storage and distribution capacity, the company say job opportunities for warehouse and inventory personel within the local area will be made available.
The facility at Westway will have capacity for 12,000 pallets – 10,000 for racked storage and 2,000 for floor storage.
The new facility is the latest addition to Bullet Express’ network which includes two centres in Glasgow and two in South Lanarkshire.
Established more than 30 years ago, Bullet Express is a full service logistics business with 150 employees providing a European road freight service, worldwide air and sea freight support and stacked storage for customers.
Westway, owned by Canmoor and Ares Management Corporation (ARES) provides industrial, warehousing, distribution and office space for companies of all sizes across a number of industries.
David McCutcheon, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer at Bullet Express, said: “With our expanding client base, we simply needed additional storage space to facilitate this demand and business growth.
“Our new centre at Westway offers quality secure space, along with good eaves height, which enables optimum storage space.
“The location also offers excellent connectivity, particularly allowing for easy access to the M8 and the new road link to Glasgow Airport.
“We are installing racking throughout the site to accommodate 12,000 pallets of which 10,000 will be racked storage and 2,000 floor storage.”
Toby Saul, Asset Manager of Canmoor, added: “The new team was established in March this year and we are delighted to welcome Bullet Express as our first new occupier.
“Bullet Express is an excellent addition to the quality occupier mix here at Westway and we wish David and the team every success with their expansion plans.
“We will continue to asset manage the park and continue the ongoing investment programme, which includes the refurbishment of Block J and Unit G1, with further infrastructure improvements and projects to be announced shortly.”
