Hutton’s Opens Largest UK Depot

Monday, October 26, 2009

Britain’s leading ship supplier, Hutton’s, has responded to growing demand from the offshore oil and gas sectors by opening its biggest UK depot in Aberdeen.

Hutton’s, which recently announced record sales figures, moved into the 13,000 sq ft (1300sq m) depot from a smaller 5,000 sq ft warehouse a month ago. Hutton’s need for expansion is a result of increased business from the offshore industry.

The new facility is located near Aberdeen harbour and provides Hutton’s with considerably increased capacity. In addition, the depot provides modern office space with up-to-date IT systems and hi-tech meeting facilities. Leased from the Harbour Board the unit is recently refurbished and houses 350 cu m of chilled and frozen freezer facilities and 382 ambient pallet places.

Managing Director Alex Taylor said, “We have invested in excess of £100,000 in the new warehouse and plan to invest an additional £250,000 in the next 12 months. Our Aberdeen branch opened only 3.5 years ago and starting from zero has built up an annual turnover of £2.5 million, making it the biggest of our branches in terms of sales.”
