Agrochemical and horticultural firm Agrigem marked its first steps to expansion with a brand new head office and storage facility in Saxilby near Lincoln after a £750,000 investment.
Recently featured as February’s Lincolnshire Business cover story, Kieran Would founded the company in 2013 and has now built the company up to a multi-million business.
The new offices were officially opened on February 10 by the chairman of the Amenity Forum, Professor John Moverley before the unveiling and a grand tour of the new 6,000 sq ft office and warehouse headquarters, created by Stirlin Developments.
The new site also includes 4,000 sq ft of specialist racked warehouse space to house 185,000 litres of hazardous product and 2,000 sq ft of office space, which is designed to accommodate 15 full time employees.
Agrigem is continuing its employment drive and are hoping to take on three full time members this year.
The neighbouring unit has also been secured along with expansion land at the rear of the building to allow future growth and storage needs.
The new Agrigem head officeKieran said: “At any one time we have around £500,000 worth of product in stock; this is shipped out to our 17,000 registered customers across the UK and into Europe.
“Over the next six months we anticipate to dispatch around 25,000 individual parcels and around 600 pallets.
“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.
“Stirlin Developments have done a fantastic job and even better that we have been able to support a local company in the process.”
