Lincolnshire-based George H Kime & Co has bought two new Renault rigids for delivery work and has more new vehicles on order.
The company has also just won planning permission to create another 26,000 sq ft of warehousing in Sleaford, which will take its total Sleaford capacity to 120,000 sq ft and 15,000 pallets. MD Nigel Kime says the new warehouse will have ground level loading bays and be fully specced for purpose, as is their existing site which has recently been fitting with fast-acting roller shutters. Although expensive, the roller doors make the site more secure and more efficient with better control of internal temperatures.
â€œOur pallet volumes have grown by 10% and because we prize customer service we are attracting new clients all the time,â€ says Kime. â€œOur investment shows our commitment to these clients.â€
