Kimes completes its £1m site extension


Kimes completes its £1m site extension

Lincolnshire-based George Kime & Co has recently completed its £1m extension of its eight-acre Sleaford site, expanding its fully racked warehousing to 120,000 feet, with three ground-level loading docks, with responsive lighting, skylights, and fast-acting shutter doors. The roller doors make the site more secure and temperature-efficient.

The company also has fully purpose-specced sites in Wrangle, Bicker (near Boston) and Witham St Hughs (near Lincoln), taking its total storage capacity to over 20,000 pallets in both racked and bulk storage areas.

Kimes has also invested in six new Renault rigids, all specced with 1.9m, 2-tonne retractable tail-lifts with railings to ensure delivery safety, and its drivers are equipped with electric assisted pump trucks.

Finally the company is phasing out all of its diesel forklifts over the coming month and replacing them with gas models, which are both cheaper to run and more environmentally friendly.
