FLTA Search Is On For Safety Champion
Materials handling specialist Briggs Equipment is once again helping promote workplace transport safety by sponsoring the Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA) 2016 ‘Safety Champion' Award.

The annual honour, now in its second year, acknowledges individuals who have committed to improving safety on site – for those working on or alongside fork lift trucks.

Head of Safety Health Environment and Quality at Briggs Equipment, Ken Stoll, said: “We are really pleased to once again support such a worthwhile endeavour. As an organisation dedicated to safety, we recognise the importance of recognising and rewarding those outstanding men and women who are making a real difference in their workplaces by going the extra mile.”

Chief Executive of the FLTA, Peter Harvey MBE, said: “We would like to thank Briggs Equipment for once again stepping forward to support this initiative.

“Safe working is crucial to the materials handling industry and, as such, it’s vital that we recognise those individuals who – even when faced with resistance to change – make lasting and effective improvements to site safety.”

The Safety Champion Award is open to individuals from companies of all shapes and sizes, in all sectors. To enter, entrants must tell the FLTA, in 300 words or fewer, why they or the person you are nominating should be the FLTA Safety Champion 2016.
Entries are welcomed until 31st August 2016. Importantly, entrants can submit as many applications as they like. Further details, as well as information on last year’s winner, can be found online.

19th Project For Greggs With CLEGG Food Projects
CLEGG Food Projects is building on its relationship with Greggs with the start of its 19th project for the UK’s leading bakery food-on-the-go retailer.

Having worked with the company for 15 years, Clegg Food Projects has started work on Greggs’ new distribution centre project in Enfield. The development will improve efficiency and increase capacity for delivery to its stores in the south.

This year will also see the completion of Clegg Food Project’s 18th contract with the food-on-the-go retailer at their Centre of Excellence for savouries in Newcastle upon Tyne. Clegg Food Projects is currently coordinating and managing the design and installation of more efficient refrigeration equipment. The project, which has been developed in partnership with the Greggs team, includes the replacement of equipment and pipe work as well as an extension to the facilities, and is due for completion late summer 2016.

Business development director at Clegg Food Projects, John Moxon, said: “Our first ever project with Greggs was back in 2001 and since then we have supported the company with projects across the UK, from Scotland to South Wales.

“The new distribution centre at Enfield is a significant project for us and we are working closely with Greggs to alter and refurbish the site to meet their specific needs.

“It’s great to be back working together.”

Clegg Food Projects provides design, engineering and construction for the food industry. For more information about Clegg Food Projects visit www.cleggfoodprojects.co.uk

Onward Holdings Goes Green With Renewable Energy Investment
Onward Holdings has invested in excess of £250,000 in renewable energy systems for three of its sites for storage and logistics operations, which will benefit its business tenants through lower electricity bills as well as boosting their green credentials.

The family-run business has been supplied with high performance, 50-100kVA solar arrays for the rooftops of its facilities based in Castleford, Featherstone and South Kirkby. The installations carried out by Class Energy are a significant investment in each site by Onward Holdings.

With the current volatility of the energy market, the commercial solar power systems are a great opportunity for businesses seeking warehouse space to control their costs and demonstrate to customers their commitment to the environment through sustainable energy technology and a lower carbon footprint.

In addition to the new solar panels, all three sites have the advantage of being close to the motorway networks for fast delivery to all parts of the UK, the railway freight network, Humber ports and regional airports. They are in superb locations and can be utilised for a wide variety of uses, subject to planning permission.

The Willowbridge Lane site in Castleford is an ideal warehouse base for those needing to quickly move and/or store goods in the north of England. The solar panels will power a host of facilities making it one of the best locations for those using containers. These include two dock levellers for the loading and unloading of containers and also box vans.

At its site in Featherstone Unit 4 is a 1.6 acre development of up to 20,000sqft providing a potential logistics operation with scope for a service area for trucks. It has planning permission allowing for construction to commence in a matter of months. Unit 5 is made up of four acres with a footprint for warehousing of up to 70,000sqft – planning permission for this unit should be quickly forthcoming.

Meanwhile, the installation of the solar photovoltaic system at the strategically located Langthwaite facility on the edge of South Kirkby near Wakefield, follows a £1million investment in security measures at the business park meaning the site is suitable for both ordinary and high risk products.

Government initiatives are expected to drive significant future growth in the Yorkshire and Humber region, meaning demand for suitable sites for warehouses and logistics operations is expected to outstrip current supply.

Spiralling power costs might have tailed off recently due to the drop in oil prices, but by installing solar panels at the sites it operates in Featherstone, Castleford and South Kirkby, Onward Holdings is future proofing energy generation as well as cheaper electricity, making the locations even more attractive to businesses looking for a distribution hub in the north of England.

Onward Holdings director Neil Storey says: “This significant investment in renewable energy provides a long term return from otherwise idle roof space at these three prime locations to help control energy costs and grid consumption, which is good for businesses and good for the environment.”

If you would like more details visit www.yorkshirewarehousing.com or call on 01977 614007. Site promotions are being handled by Andrew Miller Chartered Surveyors of Sheffield.
