Hunt’s invests in warehouse in order to carry extra stock

Hunt’s has invested in a 4,000sq ft warehouse at its head office in Sherborne, with the new premises holding 336 pallets as well as increasing the ambient storage space.

The new facility will also increase the holding of non-food lines such as chemicals, packaging, and disposables.

Purchasing Director Jason McGhee mentions “Our strategy has been to increase our stock holding to ensure we don’t let our customers down and service levels suffer. Investing back into the business in stock and warehousing space supports one of our core values of being trustworthy and dependable.”

Throughout the pandemic, Hunt’s increased its stock holding by around 50% due to issues with transport hauliers, products stuck at ports and suppliers struggling to keep up with demand.
