Temperature-controlled solutions company JS Davidson has acquired a cold storage site to form Spalding Cold Store Ltd.

The company has taken over the Spalding warehouse, with 6,500 frozen pallet spaces and 15 members of staff moving across to JS Davidson. It also said plans are in place to expand its Peterborough site.

The new acquisition, which sits on a 3.5 acre site, will be known as Spalding Cold Store Ltd – part of the JS Davidson family.

The announcement follows a period of investment over the past 18 months by the business, which has reportedly totalled over £1 million. JS Davidson said that the new developments were designed to increase productivity, drive greater efficiencies, reduce carbon footprint and provide added value to its customer base.

John Davidson, managing director of JS Davidson, said: “Spalding Cold Store is an incredibly exciting new development for the business. It is a sizeable site and one which we are confident will provide a host of opportunities.

“There is already an excellent team in place coupled with an impressive customer base providing a fantastic opportunity for JS Davidson as we continue to grow the business.”
