JPG complete extension for Symington’s Cross Green facility

JPG have just completed the extension to Symington’s warehouse facility, which was officially opened by the CEO of Symington’s, David Salkeld on May 22nd 2015.


The new extension to the warehouse facility will allow Symington’s to reduce their large external storage costs, an increase in stock accuracy.


Symington’s has operated with around 20% of its warehousing capacity being outsourced, By using the existing space on site they have been able to extend the warehouse with a fifth bay increasing the racked capacity on site from 18k pallet spaces to 24k pallet spaces.


A number of interesting facts associated with the new warehouse are:


–          1500 Cubed material / concrete removed from site

–          75% labour on site from within 20 miles of site

–          Racking travelled over 800 miles from Spain

–          8 nationalities worked within the workforce

–          100 tonnes of steel frame

–          5000 cubic meters of concrete laid

–          3000 tonnes of stones imported

–          Building 13mts in height

–          20 different trades involved with the build

–          168 staff involved from start to end

–          All this was completed within the 20-week timescale


The Delivery involved many different companies/organisations at many different phases and the co-ordination and management of the parties involved were key. JPG are pleased to have been part of this team including:

Fox Lloyd Jones, Walker Morris, Leeds City Council, Aberdeen Asset Management, Trident, KPP Limited, Stainforth Construction Limited, AR Racking


Symington’s had a defined vision to maximise their facility and the additional extension was delivered on time and within budget.
