Freight forwarder DAMCO has relocated into an all-new warehouse that benefits from energy-saving technology in a bid to trim its carbon footprint while supporting its clients.
The firm has now moved its operations to SEGRO Central Spacewaye at the North Feltham Trading estate, located within a few miles of the cargo terminal for Heathrow Airport. The initiative is part of its ongoing efforts to support its burgeoning customer base comprising leading retailers here in the UK.
The extensive energy efficient facility covers an area of 36,000 square feet and has exceptional environmental credentials, including a Grade A for its Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) and an Excellent rating for its Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM).
Managing director for DAMCO, UK and Ireland, Anthony Akerman, commented on the new premises:
“We are working with our clients closely to help reduce their CO2 footprint. By choosing a new build, we were able to ensure a more energy-efficient facility, benefitting from solar power on the roof and electrical charging points for our vehicles, and we have invested in recycled office furniture.”
Businesses seeking to lower their CO2 footprint are advised to consult professional electricians for advice. Industrial electrical contractors in Chester, London and other UK cities can perform energy audits allowing enterprises the impact of environmentally friendlier options such as LED lighting and SMART electricity systems.
DAMCOs move to the new warehouse is an integral element of its plans for continuing global growth supported by its digitalisation and Business Resilience programmes.
