Deeside haulier moves to new £2.4m transport hub

Edge Transport, a Wrexham-based haulier, has announced that its new facilities on Deeside Industrial Estate are now ready.

The new, custom-built facility covers 6.2 acres and cost £2.4 million to build. The site includes new offices, a large transhipment facility, and a new warehouse.

There is now space for the firm to carry out its existing business more efficiently, as well as room for them to expand. The old warehouse was also refurbished and modernised.

The firm currently employs 50 people on a full-time basis, and has a turnover of £5.1m per year. Moving into the new premises will allow the firm to grow its business significantly over the coming five years.

The Managing Director of Edge Transport, Jonathan Edge said:

“We had outgrown our old site in Llay due to extra demand for our storage services and the overall growth of the business.”

The transport firm originally approached Caulmer, engineering environmental planning specialists, to determine whether plans to develop the site were viable. Edge Transport then employed D2 Architects on the Wirral to produce the plans. Wynne Construction worked alongside SP Projects to complete the development.

Edge Transport’s relocation puts the firm in the Welsh Government’s Deeside Enterprise Zone. The scheme aims to make Deeside a centre for advanced manufacturing. Many of the manufacturing firms that are starting to work out of the area focus on high tech items that need careful transport from their factories to clients across the world. This means that Edge Transport has plenty of potential clients on its new doorstep.
