Stockport food ingredient supplier seeks out new site in Reddish
EHL Ingredients, Broadstone Industrial Estate, Reddish, is looking to buy a new warehouse facility in the area. Following extensive growth in 2012, the company requires between 6,000 sq. ft. and 10,000 sq. ft. to house ingredient blending machines, as well as suitable storage space for packaging materials and dry food ingredients.
The company, which hit its £5m sales target at the end of last year, is planning further growth and expansion during 2013 and the new storage facility will help to achieve this.
It currently offers around 300 food ingredients and boasts a 200-strong organic range as well as over 50 custom blends. EHL Ingredients’ products are sold into the food manufacturing sector and used in end products, such as breads and bakery items, ready meals, healthy snacks and soups and sauces. They are also sold to speciality food shops, delis and organic retailers across the UK.
Sales Director, Tasneem Backhouse, says: “We are in the process of reviewing facilities on the Broadstone Industrial Estate but we are open to enquiries from warehouses around the Reddish / Stockport area.
“We will use the new site mainly for storage of packing and packaging materials and dry ingredients, such as dried fruits and nuts in larger quantities. We also plan to install a new industrial dry ingredient blender, and machinery for our packed down facility for own label clients.
EHL is also looking for new staff and is currently recruiting for several roles including a New Product Development Manager with more roles to be announced in the next few months.
The company was awarded a grade A BRC certification once again in December last year. This gives EHL’s customers the reassurance of the company’s quality and safety management processes and opens up new growth opportunities for the business.
