Magnavale, one of the UK’s leading providers of temperature-controlled storage, is excited to announce significant progress on the construction of its new extension at the Chesterfield cold storage facility.
The provider of temperature-controlled storage solutions is currently working on numerous projects that aim to reshape the cold storage sector, creating sustainable storage solutions. With the recent announcement of the £130m investment into the development at Easton, Grantham, and the significant expansion at Chesterfield, Magnavale are making significant strides towards their Net Zero goals.
Since breaking ground earlier this year, the project at Magnavale’s Chesterfield facility has reached several important milestones, bringing the UK provider of temperature-controlled storage closer to the expected completion date of late 2024.
Magnavale report that the site excavation has been successfully completed, and the concrete foundations for the facility have been poured. Over the course of the summer, Magnavale share that their team will shift their focus towards the steelwork construction of the cold store.
On completion, the expansion will add a significant 25,000 pallet positions to the cold stores’ existing capacity of 40,000, bringing the total pallet capacity of the facility to 65,000, making it one of the largest cold stores in the area.
This expansion will not only accommodate the increasing volumes of Magnavale’s existing customers but also open doors to new customers wanting to utilise Magnavale’s temperature-controlled facilities and value-added services.
The facility features one of the most comprehensive portfolios of value-added services, encompassing, blast freezing, microwave up-tempering and contract packing. Coupled with its strategic location, just off the M1, Magnavale Chesterfield is extremely desirable for food manufacturers that wish to cut unnecessary cost, risk, and complexity from their cold chain.
