GBP 1 million investment in infrastructure
Middlesbrough freight logistics firm AV Dawson in the UK has officially opened a new GBP 1 million canopy to help service a multi-million pound deal with a major blue-chip manufacturer. The logistics firm invested in a new rail linked facility to support its multi-million pound contract with British Gypsum, a large provider for plaster and plasterboard products.
The 100 m canopy provides dry-loading capabilities for trains, which increases the efficiency of loading but also reduces the costs of drying the product when it arrives at British Gypsum’s factory.
Signed in 2018, the contract meant ten new jobs at AV Dawson and an over GBP 2 million investment in new facilities and plant equipment. The new GBP 1 million purpose-built canopy is located on the southern end of the firm’s Middlesbrough site. (mw)
