Butcher’s Pet Care (BPC), a leading UK family owned pet food business, has opened a new manufacturing and distribution facility in the Midlands, which incorporates sustainable design features.
The site has been developed in partnership with Gazeley, a global provider of sustainable logistics space. It incorporates a number of environmental measures, such as rainwater harvesting and recycling, energy efficient lighting, solar panels, low water use appliances and the use of FSC approved timber.
The new warehouse will act as the headquarters for Butcher’s Pet Care’s operations, as well as a new manufacturing and distribution facility producing 5m cans a week.
The site occupies 260,000 sq ft and is expected to deliver new capacity to meet demand for the pet care firm as it scales up its business across Europe.
Graham Baker, founder of Butcher’s Pet Care, said: “We are delighted with the new facility which fully meets our expectations. The quality of engineering is exactly what we expected from Gazeley and confirms our decision to work with them was the right one. From the outset their teams worked closely with us to ensure all our requirements were incorporated into its development. The speed of the construction and the ability to continue our business was essential and Gazeley allowed us to do just that.”
