Magnavale Easton Phase II Update: Envelope is Complete

With the finish line rapidly approaching, in Q3 2024, we are delighted to announce that the external structure of our new 101,000 pallet temperature-controlled facility is now complete!

Along with the completion of the cladding, the Magnavale areas of the Sadel Food Hub are taking shape with the yard works, including the car park, truck park, and internal roadways, progressing steadily in the background throughout spring and early summer.

 Our Chief Operating Officer, Amanda Cogan, commented:

“Seeing the external structure of Easton complete is a huge milestone for all the teams that have been working on the development, and the Magnavale Easton team already working on site who are seeing the site being rapidly regenerated. Once operational, the facility will play a critical role in supporting food production in Lincolnshire as well as surrounding locations.”

A crucial component of this new facility is installing an oxygen reduction system, which is currently underway. This technology ensures that 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.

Magnavale has partnered with Swisslog, a leading automation solution provider, to implement a highly advanced automated storage and retrieval system. With the racking, monorails and control systems now installed, extensive testing and commissioning is now being undertaken. The first test pallets have successfully already made their way from the loading bays into the high bay and back out for dispatch, displaying the system’s impressive functionality.

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.

As we approach the final stretch, our team remains dedicated to delivering a world-class temperature-controlled facility that will revolutionise our operations and set new standards in the industry.
