Norbert Dentressangle (ND) is expanding its two-man delivery Specialist Services arm by investing in new infrastructure at its Bury St Edmunds DC to accomodate the operation.

This latest investment follows the opening of a similar centre at its Wakefield, West Yorkshire site in March to “meet growing demand” for the operation, which makes non-standard deliveries of high-value, fragile, bulky or time-sensitive consignments.

“It’s all about supporting our technology and high care customers, which often require tailored services, and enhancing our national infrastructure to establish a robust platform that underpins our best in class offering,” explained Dan Myers, MD at ND Transport and Distribution UK.

ND said the new sites will play a key role in the development of the company’s two-man operations, which handle bulky or sensitive items such as air conditioning, professional catering and refrigeration, vending and telecommunications equipment.

The firm added that the 55,000ft² Suffolk facility has 16,000 ft² of warehousing and excellent transport links East to West via the A14 and A11. It also has potential for significant future expansion.

Dave Finnie, director of dedicated contracts and specialist services at ND UK, added: “The expanded service will particularly support our customers throughout Norwich, Ipswich and surrounding areas by providing reduced transit times and enhance our early morning delivery capability.”

Bury St Edmunds is the fourth site the company has invested in for its Specialist Services business in the last three years. As well as Wakefield, it has opened a new facility at Taunton, Somerset, in 2013, followed last year with a new NDC at Brownhills, near Walsall.

Earlier this year, MotorTransport.co.uk spoke to ND's chief executive Hervé Montjotin about the company's growth curve.
