Russell WBHO has been named Coldstore Contractor fo the Year at one of the top industry awards.
The Temperature Controlled Storage & Distribution magazine awards were announced in an online event yesterday, November 18th.
Following a nomination from our client Lineage Logistics, Russell WBHO was named the winner in this video.
Russell WBHO has worked with Lineage for more than 15 years, delivering in excess of 1,000,000 sq ft of temperature-controlled storage and ancillary facilities for them across the UK.
We are currently undertaking builds for them at their headquarters in Heywood and their new Southern distribution hub at Great Haddon near Peterborough.
In the nomination, Lineage executive director Jonathan Baker, said: “They develop schemes which suit our requirements, often planning many years in advance and putting together phased programmes which allow for our continued expansion.
“Buildability is central to their proposals with cost, time, efficiency and future requirements balanced carefully against our immediate needs.
“The longevity of our relationship, especially the continued presence of their senior management team who are undoubtedly experts in their field, means they are a genuine extension of our internal team.
“Open communication and implicit trust between client and contractor results in projects which are absolutely always delivered on time and within budget, to our exacting specification.
“Russell WBHO has been our go-to contractor for a decade and a half, they have supported our expansion and provided us with a vast portfolio of state-of-the-art cold storage facilities. We couldn’t recommend them highly enough.”
Welcoming the win on behalf of the whole team, Russell WBHO joint MD Andrew Russell said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive this award. It recognises the quality of the projects delivered for clients in this area, chiefly Lineage Logistics, and the excellent relationships built between our businesses over the last 15 years.
“Being able to work so closely with a client and develop those relationships as an extension of their team, allows us to plan and deliver projects with the maximum efficiency to the ultimate benefit of both sides. I want to thank Lineage for their support in nominating us for this award, and we look forward to delivering our current projects for them on time, on specification and on budget once again.”
