Boughey taking on more staff to keep up with demand

A food storage and distribution company has seen an extra 50 truck loads leaving its depot near Nantwich each day.

Boughey Distribution and its 600-strong workforce are operating around-the-clock to ensure food supplies are delivered to retailers around the country.

The firm has also taken on new staff to keep up with demand, and to provide cover for those who may be isolating at home.

Managing Director Keith Forster has praised the dedication and commitment of his team of staff who have allowed them to continue to deliver in unprecedented times.

He said: “Although we’re not employing front-line key workers like the NHS, we do definitely have a team of key workers who are dedicated to ensuring we keep the country’s food supplies moving and into shops.

“We really couldn’t be more appreciative of the efforts made by the whole team here to deal with the exceptional circumstances we’re all experiencing.

"This includes our warehouse team and drivers working 24 hours a day, and the transport operations and customer service teams who ensure everything gets to the right place and at the right time.

"Everyone is pulling out all-the-stops so that we can continue to deliver for our customers.

“As with many businesses, we have put in place extensive safe-guarding and hygiene measures for all our staff to secure their well-being and these are working really well.

"We are very fortunate to have a very loyal team, 90% of whom live within a ten-mile radius of our headquarters.”

As well as coping with the day-to-day challenges presented by Covid-19, Boughey is also managing the fit-out of its 237,734 sq ft warehouse at Crewe Commercial Park which will be fully open later this month. The new warehouse will increase the company’s storage capacity from 100,000 to 137,000 pallet spaces.

The facility has created 100 new warehouse, driving and administrative jobs.

Anyone interested in applying for the roles should email or call 01829 260704 for more information.
