Croda has announced it will allocate £7 million to the development of a state-of-the-art warehouse based in Goole, which will become the company’s worldwide distribution hub for products made at the bases in Hull and Rawcliffe Bridge.
The warehouse will also act as the hub for European delivery from its global network.
Part of the Goole 36 development, the 30.4 acre site will play host to a new International Employee Training Centre and will enable Croda to develop a larger distribution unit.
According to Maarten Heybroek, President of Croda Europe, “We are delighted at the prospect of securing a site in Goole for this investment as we are hugely proud of our Yorkshire heritage. Our founding Rawcliffe Bridge manufacturing site and our Global Headquarters, Cowick Hall, are both located less than ten miles away.
“In line with our ongoing commitment to innovation and sustainability, we will use the latest technologies to minimise our environmental impact and offer the most advanced safety features to our people in a facility of this kind.
“This announcement demonstrates the Company’s commitment to UK manufacturing and provides long term job security for the workforce who will move from our existing operation and for the new quality warehouse roles we will create.”
