As you may have read from our previous blog post way back in December of last year, Catering24 agreed development of a brand new 27,349ft warehouse and office bespoke buiding not far from our current warehouse location in Derby. 

Clowes Development have been hard at work building the warehouse for the past 8 months and last week we had the official handover for the building and received the keys to Catering24's new home. We have been working hard to move everything over and are now fully operating from our new site.

Just eight months after breaking ground at Clowes Developments-owned Etiquette Park in Ilkeston, lead construction contractor TanRo has handed over the completed units to occupiers Catering24 and another occupier.

Construction of both units, totalling circa 50,000 sq ft, began in December 2021. Despite a host of challenges faced by the industry, namely supply and demand of materials and a shortage of skilled labour, TanRo has delivered the bespoke units for Clowes Developments’ clients, on time and according to programme, just eight months on. 

On Monday 25th July, practical completion of Unit A was certified. Unit A is a 27,349 sq ft industrial unit which sits on the left-hand side of the business park. Family business owners, Charlie, Steve and Oliver were onsite to mark the occasion and commented.

“This is an exciting new chapter for Catering24. Our growth over recent years has led us to this point but it’s been 30+years in the making. We are looking forward to having our own set of keys and start making the brand new, pristine unit feel like home for our staff.”
