S&W Wholesale Officially Unveil Plans to Construct £15m Storage & Distribution Hub in Newry

Great news from our member, S&W Wholesale who have officially unveiled plans to build £15m storage and distribution hub in Newry City.

The landmark multi-million pound investment on the earmarked 20-acre site will be home to a new multi-purpose distribution hub, head office space, vehicle management area, recycling area and much more.

The new state-of-the-art storage centre will boast 180,000 sq ft hosting all ambient, chilled, fresh and frozen products all under one roof.

To give you the magnitude of the investment, their current location in Carnbane which has been home to S&W Wholesale since 2010 already operates at 100,000 sq ft.

This redevelopment plan will almost double in capacity allowing their continued vision for growth, improve the efficiencies and investment in both the business and local area.

The conveniently based move to Chancellors Road, just off the main A1 Dual Carriageway out of Newry to Dublin will position the business in the best location to service their retail and wholesale customers throughout the island of Ireland with greater ease.

The site will become more eco-friendly focused with the introduction of solar panels, electric car charging points and methods of reducing waste, reducing S&W Wholesale’s carbon footprint for the future.

Aspects of the new facility are well under way with a local architect firm spearheading the cutting edge design.

Michael Skelton, MD of S&W Wholesale said:

“Over the past number of years, we have experienced sustained growth and this investment into the new multi-purpose site is aimed at facilitating this growth further and to provide our employees with a better working environment but as well as providing a more efficient way of working across the entire business.”

“We are committed to driving our footprint in the local community with plans to build on our 250+ workforce and work alongside local businesses and organisations in making a real positive change in the local area and beyond.”

“We are really excited about the build and to get Phase 1 underway. With all that has happened over the past few years with the pandemic this is a positive story for all involved with S&W Wholesale, the local area, employees and their communities as well as our retailers and trade partners as we continue to be one of Irelands leading grocery wholesalers. We will continue to deliver A Whole Lot More.”
