The team here at Browns Distribution has been working on something HUGE that will not only benefit both ourselves and our customers, but will also help the wider community.
We're thrilled to announce that we're moving!
We'll be moving to a much larger site in Summer 2022, which will open up multiple new job opportunities for those living in Stoke-On-Trent and the surrounding areas.
Three generations of the Browns family have owned and operated the site in Ravensdale, Stoke-On-Trent, since the 1960s.
Over the last few years, freight volume and demand have sky-rocketed, resulting in Browns needing more space to operate and store goods for distribution. Thus in 2018, new warehousing was built on the site, opening up the opportunity to store 6,000 more pallets!
However, despite the extra storage space, Browns have found themselves consistently growing further towards the boundaries of the Ravensdale site. Thus, they have purchased a large site where they will be building a purpose-built, cutting-edge distribution centre.
Believe it or not, less than 300 metres down the road!
We are incredibly proud of our heritage. We wouldn't dream of settling far from our roots, which is why we snapped up the land at the end of the road as soon as we knew it was available - but that's a whole other story!
The new site is considerably larger than the current site, with much more capacity for distribution and warehousing along with loading bays spanning the entire length of the building, which are all under canopy.
Plus, the new office space will feature specialist office and IT systems along with enhanced staff training facilities, so we can continue improving our services while moving distribution forward.
We're hoping to open our new doors in Summer 2022.
We'll be sharing snaps of the site throughout the build. Be sure to check back here in the next few weeks to see progress!
