Iron Mountain, the storage and information management services company enabling digital transformation, has expanded operations in the UK with the new opening of a large pallet storage facility in Heywood, Greater Manchester.
Size: The 148,856 square-foot warehouse will provide storage capacity for 28,000 pallets.
Features: The new, fully racked, shared-user facility will enable critical inventory to be managed with security, scale and speed. In addition, customers will be able to manage their inventory up or down as their space requirements change, helping reduce disruption to supply chains.
The warehouse is fully secured with CCTV cameras and monitored access controls. Iron Mountain has years of expertise in storing valuable assets and the same chain of custody will be applied to its new facility.
Additional services on site include container loading and unloading, as well as a range of fulfilment services such as pick and pack and product manipulation services.
Location: Heywood Distribution Park is one of the best known industrial and distribution estates in the North West of England. Its prime location allows fast and easy access to the entire North West region and the Trans Pennine motorway network. It is also close to the M60 orbital motorway and just nine miles from Manchester city centre.
This facility will benefit various industries including retail and manufacturing but also the public sector as Iron Mountain is part of the government’s Logistics and Warehousing framework. The commercial agreement has been developed to benefit central government and wider public sector organisations by tailoring logistics and warehousing services to meet the specific needs of all public sector buyers.
