Germinal has invested £1.5m to upgrade packing facilities and create additional storage capacity at its Lincoln headquarters.
Paul Billings, managing director, said the improved customer service now resulting from these latest developments “is an essential step in future-proofing the company’s interests”.
He added: “We’ve installed an automated bag filling, palletising and pallet wrapping line capable of highly responsive functionality and outputs of over 500 bags per hour. We’ve also erected a new 18,565 sqft fully racked-out warehouse to effectively double our capacity to store finished goods.
“This means we can meet our customers’ orders for forage and amenity seed faster and more accurately, improving what is already renowned as a very dependable next-day-delivery service.”
