This story is over

Horticulture firm Agrigem is set to move to a new purpose built warehouse in Saxilby following a £750,000 investment.

The company, which specialises in a number of products including weed killer, fertiliser, grass seed and advice, will move from its current location in Market Rasen to the new site at Riverside Enterprise Park in mid-January.

The main building, named Gem House, includes around 4,000 sq ft of specialist racked warehouse space and around 2,000 sq ft of office space.

This will act as Agrigem’s headquarters for all their operations. The neighbouring unit will also secure future growth and storage needs for the company.

The warehouse will store various specialist products, which are destined for everything from gardeners and farmers for top class golf courses, racecourses, and football pitches.

Founded by Managing Director Kieran Would in 2013, the company has grown into a multi-million pound business, distributing products to 17,000 customers across Europe.

Kieran said: “We have seen exponential growth over the last three years with the last 12 months presenting some very exciting opportunities for us.

“This has meant we have grown our full time staff from three to six since January with a view to employ a further three full time people over the next 12 months.

“This is an incredibly exciting time for my team who’s hard work has made it all possible. The site was chosen partly for its prominent location and excellent transport links, but also because it is one of a few semi-rural industrial parks which offer excellent property for freehold purchase.”
