Foodservice wholesaler kff has expanded the size of its warehouse facility at Aylesford, Kent, to 24,390 sq ft, adding new ranges of cleaning materials and non-foods as well as more chilled, ambient and grocery lines.
The extra space, at a cost of £3.5 million, is located opposite the company’s headquarters. The development will provide work for 20 more staff and increase the transport fleet by 14 vehicles.
Managing director Chris Beckley said: “We are committed to delivering high quality products and ingredients to our customers. This expansion enables up to diversify our portfolio and offer increased product ranges.
“We are continuously looking to grow and have set aside a further £1 million to fund future business growth plans once the new warehouse is up and running.”
Kff, which also has a site in Witney, Oxon, was established over 50 years ago. It was acquired by Sysco in 2018. The US concern also bought Brakes two years earlier.
