Sysco GB has announced a £15 million investment in its Brakes Scotland depot in Newhouse, North Lanarkshire, creating around 100 new jobs as it expands the site by more than 25%.
As part of the development, Brakes Scotland is committed to increasing the number of Scottish products it sells.
Already one of the largest of the 30 depots in Sysco’s British network, the Newhouse site will be enlarged to more than 200,000 sq feet (once planning permission has been granted). The improved facilities will enable the company to increase the range of local fresh products it can sell, something it has identified as becoming increasingly important to food outlets across the country.
Paul Nieduszynski, chief executive at Sysco GB, said: “Brakes Scotland has grown steadily over the past few years, serving communities right across the nation. The investment that we are making in the Newhouse facility to increase our capacity and grow our Scottish range shows our commitment to providing market-leading range and service to our existing and new customers across Scotland.”
