One of the largest temperature controlled food distribution businesses in the UK, Reed Boardall stores and delivers frozen food from manufacturers across Britain, Europe and further afield to all of the UK’s best-known supermarkets.
Mr Jones was welcomed by Keith Boardall, chief executive of Reed Boardall Group, and his son Marcus, deputy chief executive. He was taken on a tour of the company’s newest cold store by Andrew Baldwin, managing director of the group’s cold storage division. The operation comprises 158km of rack space and provides 142,000 pallet capacity in total.
"With more than 20 years’ experience serving many of the best known names in the frozen food industry, we are very proud to have built up such a successful business here and we are delighted to welcome Mr Jones," comments group chief executive Keith Boardall.
Mr Jones said: "It was good to see first hand the facilities of Reed Boardall – a significant employer and business in the Harrogate district. Having the largest single site cold store and distribution facility in Europe, it is not surprising that the company has become a leading player in this sector.
"It is a boon to North Yorkshire to have such an important business and employer based here and I am sure that the company will see continuing success with the new facilities I have seen today."
