Magnavale Easton Development Over 75% Complete
As a leading UK provider of temperature-controlled storage, we are pleased to share an update on our new £130 million automated temperature-controlled facility being built in Easton, Grantham. Since breaking ground in 2022, the project remains on schedule for completion by late 2024.
The Easton site will be home to one of Europe’s most advanced and efficient cold storage warehouses. The facility will offer 45-meter high-bay storage with capacity for an impressive 101,000 pallets.
To date, racking installation in the high-bay area is now over 75% complete. All 13 automated cranes have been installed and await final completion of the remaining racking structure. Plant rooms are built out and equipment installation is underway. Building services and oxygen reduction systems are also being installed behind these main works.
In the project’s low-bay area, 20 loading docks near completion alongside conveyors, racking, and monorail systems that will enable automation. Across five floors, fit-out continues, adding a new office building featuring curtain walling and a completed roof.
We are particularly excited about the Easton location because of how it will bolster food production and cold chain operations in the surrounding Lincolnshire area. By implementing industry-leading automation and running solely on renewable energy, the site will be one of Europe’s most advanced and sustainable cold storage facilities.
Once operation, in late 2024, we expect that the development will transform frozen storage and value-added capabilities across the UK, allowing our partners to cut unnecessary cost, risk and complexity within their cold chain.
