Haulage firm Browns Distribution to build new headquarter

Haulage firm

Work on the new base is underway and is expected to be complete by the end of August 2022

Haulage firm Browns Distribution is building a brand new headquarter, just 300 metres away from its current base.

The family-run business has grown considerably over the past few years as freight volume and demand for palletised collections and deliveries sky-rocketed.

Now the business has unveiled multi-million pound plans to construct a huge new distribution centre off in Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent. It is being built on one-acre land next to its existing site in Tunstall.

Managing director David Brown Jr. said: We are experiencing ongoing growth within the business. We’ve had a very successful few years and now we need to improve our infrastructure.

Browns Distribution has been based at this site since the sixties, and we like it here, but we wanted to push the boat out with our new facility which means relocating, he said.

However, we were very lucky that a piece of land right next door became available at the right time, so we won’t have to move very far. There’s no better solution for us than moving a few metres down the road and we’re really pleased that we are able to stay in Stoke-on-Trent, he said.

Work on the new base is underway and is expected to be complete by the end of August 2022.

The £8 million facility will boast a 75,000 sq ft warehouse, offices spanning two stories and a new 100-space car park.

The move will create up to 15 new jobs.

David said: We have designed every last detail of this facility to make sure we are operating as efficiently as possible.

He said: It will be considerably larger than our current site so we will need to grow into the building – and that’s exactly what we intend to do.
