Discount food and drink wholesaler Morris & Son has moved to a new purpose-built facility in South Yorkshire.
The Leeds-based business has moved to 52,000 sq ft premises at at Silkstone Court on Dodworth Business Park, close to M1 at Barnsley.
Morris & Son will retain a small presence in Leeds with the production operation remaining; however, the majority of its 50 employees will operate from the new site.
Additional positions are set to be created in sales, purchasing and business development.
Managing director Andy Needham said: “The location, close to Junction 37 of the M1, is ideal for us as it will enable us to make significant efficiencies in our distribution as well as giving us extra space in the warehouse itself, thanks to the 11-metre eaves height. While we will retain a small presence in Leeds, bringing the business to this purpose-built site gives us the opportunity to substantially develop the range of services we can offer and products we sell.
“I am delighted that the majority of our current staff have embraced the move and will be relocating with us. Our plans include further improving our systems and additional recruitment in due course.”
