Chemical Warehousing

H.W. Coates has always invested in the very best vehicles, warehouses and IT.

As the leading logistics company in packaged chemicals that means more COMAH sites than anyone else, with high specification warehouses offering clean, quality space with add-ons such as temperature control, 24 hour manned security, in-rack sprinklers, decanting and specialist stores.

Chemical warehousing:
Warehousing isn't the same as storage. It means receipt, repacking, labelling, stock control and despatch - efficiently and safely. We do it all. And it means having the right premises: racked, sprinkled, temperature controlled, specialist (flammable, peroxide, etc). We have them all.

High-spec stores:
Our site at Stoke was purpose-built in 2001. It sits on freehold land, was designed and commissioned by a joint Coates - customer team and employs the highest specifications throughout from its FOSROC surface to advanced HVAC filtration. The highest quality needs real investment.

Leading edge IT:
We link our operations through a 100-workstation WAN, running linked warehouse-distribution and administrative systems. This provides high efficiency, accuracy and customer visibility, allows fully flexible pricing and ensures we stay at the forefront of industry development.

Nationwide:
The Scots at our Grangemouth depot beat teams from all parts of the Group (and England) on their way to the title of best 6-a-side team in the company.
From Grangemouth to Hertford, from Shrewsbury to Newmarket, we have space where you need it.
