Yorkshire haulage firm expands across North with 10 new jobs at £1.4m facility
A haulage specialist based in West Yorkshire has expanded outside of its region with the launch of a new multi-million pound facility.
Elland-based A.D.D. Express has expanded into an additional facility in Rochdale which has undergone a £1.4m refurbishment.
Close to junction 21 of the M62, the 16-door drive-through facility will accommodate up to 4,000 pallets a night, and features a five-acre yard, sort facility, drive-thru canopy, scanning bays, CCTV and a weigh bridge.
Established on a 500 sq ft site in 1991, A.D.D. Express Ltd will retain its existing 60,000 sq ft facility in Elland, while creating 10 new jobs at the Rochdale site.
Dave Fairbrother, managing director at A.D.D. Express Ltd, commented: “The Rochdale site is the perfect location for us as it provides space to expand our fleet and grow with our customers.
“The business has been growing at a rate of 10 per cent year on year for the last five years and that is all organic growth via word of mouth. We’ve been wanting to expand our warehousing space for some time, but it has taken us two and a half years to find a site with suitable space and facilities for this expansion.
“For the first time we will be able to proactively expand our business and reach our full potential. It is an exciting time for our business and our team, who have faced real challenges during the last few months, and we will continue to defy expectations.”
