Ferguson Transport & Shipping Progress at Corpach Logistics Hub
In April 2016, Ferguson Transport & Shipping purchased the K1 BSW Sawmill site as an exciting development in the future expansion of the business. In recent years expansion has seen the company grow its infrastructure to accommodate the organic growth of the company.
The purchase of the 18 acre site will in time become the company’s main logistics hub in the Corpach area including offices, 160,000 sq. ft. of warehousing, large hard standing and a weighbridge which will centralise most of the companies’ local activities onto the one site.
In recent months the refurbishment of the site and offices has been progressing well. The offices are due completion in the coming weeks and will begin to get used at the turn of the year.
Recently, 3 out of the 5 warehouse bays have been re-roofed and fitted with modern motion sensing LED lights giving us a vast area for dry storage. Externally we also fitted new LED flood lights on ambient light sensors. LED’s are extremely energy efficient and use a fraction of the energy of an incandescent light bulb. The fitting of the LED’s along with the motion and ambient sensors will drastically reduce our power consumption on the site.
Throughout the warehouses there has been 9 large galvanized roller doors fitted. We have made and erected three new height restriction barriers to prevent any high loads or plant coming into contact with the overhead power lines.
In 2018 we will continue with further planned upgrades throughout the site to further support our customer’s needs. Exciting Times ahead for Ferguson Transport and Shipping’s Corpach Logistic Hub Plans!
