Trilanco, the animal health and equestrian products wholesaler, has begun the construction of a new purpose-built facility.
The seven million pound project was officially launched on December 11 2015. Trilanco’s new facility will be located at Mill Farm in Kirkham, which is around six miles from its current base.
The new six acre site will feature offices and a 110,000 square foot warehouse that will house in excess of 12,000 product lines that are stocked by the company. The new facility could also support the employment of up to 30 new team members in the future.
“We’re so pleased to be able to share this news with people as it’s been in the planning stages for some time,” said Martin Balmer, managing director of Trilanco.
“We’ve been looking for the perfect site to move to for a while now as our ever increasing product range, customer base and the level of business we’re doing means we’ve outgrown our current location and need more space. The new facility, which is currently being built, is a significant investment for us at some seven million pounds, but it’s going to help us to continue to improve, grow and support our customers throughout the UK and beyond. Being able to build exactly what we want from the ground up also has significant advantages. We’re really excited about this next phase – it’ll be a big change as we’ve been at our current location since 1981, but we can’t wait.”
The new site is due to be completed by the end of 2016. The company has set up a blog documenting the build and relocation process. For more information, visit www.trilanco.com.
