Aston Clinton-based service provider, Flegg Projects are excited to announce they are re-locating to new premises in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.
Following several years of considerable growth, the move finally realises a long-held desire to re-locate the business to premises that reflect Flegg’s profile, to offer their valued customers a better facility for their valuable freight to be stored and an improved environment for Flegg’s talented teams to thrive.
The move will involve opening two premises that will feature:
- A modern secure warehouse with two 10-ton capacity overhead gantry cranes
- Separate premises for a workshop with additional internal storage space
- A large secure lorry park
- Facilities to cold-store up to 40 medical systems
We caught up with managing director, Jayson Flegg and asked him about the move and what it means for the future.
“We have been planning to re-locate to better premises since 2007 and were making good progress on this when the financial crisis struck, and we had to review our plans. We had hoped to re-develop the site at Aston Clinton, but this just has not been possible.
“Our business has grown so much over the past 5-years and we believe the timing is now right. After scoping several existing premises, I am pleased with the two locations that we have found.
“Ideally, we would have liked to house the business on one site but given the mixtures of use and the space we need, there was nothing suitable in the area. What we have found I believe will set Flegg Projects up for many years to come and I am excited about the new services we can offer customers in future and reward our hard-working and loyal staff with a better place to work from.
“The move also signifies a commitment to improve our carbon footprint which will be achieved through operating more modern facilities, that will require less energy to heat and light and the reduction in the use of fuel required to operate our forklift trucks.
“I cannot wait for the day when we can invite customers along to see the facilities for themselves and I thank everyone who has helped us to make this significant step in our companies history.”
The internal gantry cranes are a big bonus as they will reduce the aisle space required for forklift. Heavy lifting capacity (up to 100-tons) is still available from our existing in-house equipment.
In addition to their long-established storage, handling and export packing services, Flegg Projects are looking to develop a number of additional offerings to include bonded storage, cross-docking, and pre-staging facilities. They will also have access to an on-site partner who can provide customs clearance – allowing Flegg to offer a true end-to-end service.
The new warehouse is currently having some light construction work completed which is expected to be completed by March 1. Flegg Projects expects to complete the move into both new sites by March 31, and will keep customers updated on progress so deliveries can be diverted to the correct locations.
Before and during the move it will be business as usual for all at Flegg.
