T.Quality expands its operation in Scotland

National fast-food wholesaler T.Quality is expanding its operation in Scotland.

It is moving from its 10,000 sq ft unit in Hillington Park, Glasgow – which it inherited with its acquisition in March of Morrison’s Foodservices – into a redeveloped 22,540 sq ft warehouse in the same business park.

The move, which takes place at the end of May, will create 20 new jobs, with further expansion planned in the coming months.

The £1.9 million investment will see the 1950s building turned into a modern logistics unit with new offices and an enlarged service yard. The redevelopment should reduce energy consumption by 79% through enhanced insulation, LED lighting, an air-source heat pump and removal of gas appliances.

T.Quality, which was founded in the 1920s in Hull, now operates 12 distribution centres around the UK and supplies a variety of products to fast-food outlets, care homes and the wholesale fishmarket industry.

Mike Crees, managing director of T.Quality, said: “We are delighted to be able to move into our own customer logistics facility following our acquisition of Morrisons Foodservice.

“The new site in Hillington Park is the largest of all our depots and shows the exciting potential and plans which we will be laying down in Scotland. The site and our acquisition of Morrison’s Foodservices is truly a game changer for how we will operate in Scotland.

“We will be able to add further capacity to our operation which will see us deliver to the whole of Scotland, but it will also help enhance our customer service levels with increased delivery dates.”
