Work begins on £2m base for Sheffield hauliers
A Sheffield haulage and logistics firm has started work on a new £2m base on Tinsley Park Road.
The team at DBL Logistics have received help from six top Sheffield boxers in preparing the ground for the 33,500 sq ft warehouse and office building.
Boxers Junior Witter, Richard Towers, Tom Mcassey, Jack Perry, Sam O’Mason and David Howe, joined members of the team for the turf-breaking event marking the start of construction.
David and Sam are sponsored by DBL Logistics and both preparing for fights in Sheffield during April and May.
Managing director David Clarkson said: “The weather has been so cold that we needed some extra weight and power to break the ground. Who better to turn to than some of Sheffield’s best boxers!
“The development of a new warehouse is a significant and exciting step forward for the company and we are delighted it is now underway. We aim for the building to be completed by the autumn and up and running before the end of the year.
“The project wouldn’t be possible without the support of a number of people and businesses which have helped get it off the ground, so we are pleased they were able to join us for this special occasion.”
Phillip Carr and Stephen Evans from HSBC Bank attended the start of work as the bank provided a £1.8million finance package to DBL Logistics to support the development.
