Full Turnkey Solution For William Rowland’s New 6.5-Acre Warehouse
CAM Fork Lift Trucks first-ever customer, William Rowland have moved their Head Office from their original site on Meadow Lane in Sheffield, where they have been since 1870, to a new purpose-built unit on a 6.5-acre site on the Wentworth Industrial Estate at Tankersley, near Barnsley.
Richard Lowe, Managing Director for William Rowland said “In selecting the site, we had to consider our strongest asset (employees) first as without them we cannot provide the outstanding levels of expertise and service our customers are accustomed to. Additionally, we wish to become an employer of choice, and whilst we are renowned for service and stability, a modern place of work will help with that.“
We are happy to have achieved the move against the original time scale. More importantly, the relocation took place safely with careful consideration of WR employees and contractors. During the transition, we relied heavily on our sister facility in the West Midlands to ensure no disruption to supplies, inward or outward.
The investment of over £10m enables our business to remove previous constraints and restructure in order to address our key product segments of refined metals, speciality alloys, metal powders and solders & alloys. The investment is necessary for WR to help our customers’ businesses grow and we look forward to continuing the relationship with our customers and suppliers moving forward.
Managing Director, William Rowland
