Collett continues expansion after port launch

Have your say

A TRANSPORT, shipping and handling company plans to grow its Yorkshire operations.

Halifax-based Collett & Sons is expanding its Halifax and Goole facilities following the launch of its new heavy lift and port facility in Grangemouth, Scotland.

The new depot will complement the company’s headquarters in Halifax, and its Heavy Lift and Port facility in Goole, which has handled more than 300 wind turbines since it opened in 2008.

The new Grangemouth depot will have a 110-tonne gantry crane along with other heavy duty handling equipment, which will all be fully operational by January 2014. The depot will have its own quayside facility as well as the full use of Grangemouth Port. Collett’s regional manager, Gerry Carroll, said: “Collett’s new depot in Scotland shows the company’s commitment to the area, and shows its healthy economic prospects. We’ll be able to offer a superb service not only in Scotland but also the borders and the north of England.”
