Magnavale Easton Approaches Finish Line

Set to open in Q3 2024, our development taking place at our Easton site is approaching the finish line. In recent weeks, we have watched the development come together piece by piece, with the installation of refrigeration pipework, cladding, roofing, and the installation of the refrigeration plant. These milestones bring the facility ever closer to becoming a cutting-edge solution for sustainable and efficient cold storage.

The highly efficient temperature-controlled facility has been built with the cold chain in mind; with a huge capacity of 101,000 pallet positions and multiple floors dedicated to contract packing, we aim to shorten and simplify cold chains, cutting out unnecessary touchpoints.

Our Chief Operating Officer, Amanda Cogan, commented:

“We recognise the critical role that our automated temperature-controlled facility will play in supporting food production in Lincolnshire, minimising food waste and ensuring product safety. Easton has been designed with the cold chain in mind. With the integration of cold chain solutions, such as contract packing, the facility will allow partners to cut out unnecessary steps in their cold chain, reducing transport costs and reducing carbon emissions.”

As well as efficiency, the safety of stock is paramount to us at Magnavale. With planned systems in place, such as oxygen reduction, it is almost impossible for a fire to start, which ensures stock will be safe from fire and the water damage associated with traditional sprinkler systems.

Developed by some of the best names in the industry, the temperature-controlled facility has been designed to prevent disruptions during peak operational periods like the Christmas season, with multiple pallet ingress and egress points to avoid bottlenecks as well as built-in redundancy planning with no single point of failure.
