We are pleased to announce some changes to our warehousing arrangements.
We have recently completed a major strategic review of our warehousing arrangements covering both customer reserves stored with Octavian (at Corsham in Wiltshire) and our trading stock stored with Great Bear Distribution (at Hoddesdon in Hertfordshire).
As a result we have decided to consolidate both our customer reserves and trading stock into a single purpose built, above ground warehouse facility with excellent proximity to London and the motorway network.
On the site we currently occupy in Hoddesdon we have commissioned a Corney & Barrow dedicated area of some 67,000 sq. ft. with the following specific design brief:
Temperature and humidity controlled
Fire protected with a state of the art sprinkler system
In addition to continuing to provide perfect long term storage conditions, this consolidation will enable us to deliver speed and efficiencies around the movement of customer reserves and to meet the increasing expectations of our customers.
Completion of this ambitious project is due in 2020. We propose to start moving wines from our Corsham facility in Summer 2019 and we will write to you again nearer the time.
We are all terrifically excited by this initiative which we believe will meet and exceed all your storage and logistic needs. Do please speak to your normal sales person.
