Menzies Distribution Opens New Supply Chain Facility in Elgin

We are delighted to have opened a new state of the art distribution centre in Elgin, Morayshire.

 

The 10,375 square foot building, sitting on a one-acre site, will service around parcels, pallets and full loads daily for business-to-business and business-to-consumer customers. The new facility will provide additional local employment.

 

Menzies was pleased to welcome Richard Lochhead, Member of the Scottish Parliament for Moray and Minister for Just Transition, Employment and Fair Work, to formally open the facility.

 

The new centre has been built with environmental sustainability at its heart with the facility being powered entirely by clean and renewable energy sources. To support the continuing expansion of Menzies’ electric vehicle fleet across Scotland and the adoption of electric vehicles more widely, the site has electric vehicle charging points accessible to all.

 

Stephen Mooney, Parcels Operations Director, at Menzies, said:

 

“We are committed to delivering fantastic service, being the partner of choice for our customers and ensuring environmental sustainability across our operations. This latest investment is not only bringing new jobs to Elgin but will also support the growth and momentum we are seeing across the sectors we serve from news, retail and e-commerce, to packaging, healthcare, field engineering and food. As the pre-eminent Northern Highlands & Islands, Grampian, and Argyll logistics provider, I’m particularly pleased that we will be able to make our electric vehicle charging points widely available and play a role in developing the charging ecosystem. Menzies has ambitious plans for the future and we are committed to growing our network in the Northern Highlands & Islands.”

 

Richard Lochhead MSP added:

 

“Menzies is a company that has demonstrated its commitment to Moray and the wider region, so I was delighted to officially open their new distribution centre in Elgin.

 

“This is a facility that’s designed for the future, powered by green energy sources, and supporting the expansion of Menzies’ fleet of electric vehicles.

 

“More and more local businesses are stepping up and looking at how they can do business in a more responsible way and here Menzies is showing real leadership in moving to a more sustainable model and supporting our communities to do likewise.”
