Darcy Spillcare buys Wirral warehouse

The Kent-based international manufacturer and supplier of spill prevention and control products has bought 1 Hickmans Road in Birkenhead for an undisclosed sum.

The 27,000 sq ft warehouse and office facility sits on a one-acre site and was previously owned by a private investor and occupied by The Desk Centre, which manufactures home office and study furniture.

Discussions between Smith & Sons, representing the previous owner, and Darcy Spillcare began early this year with the Kent company keen to relocate its manufacturing arm to the site as part of its wider expansion plans.

Darcy Spillcare's new site is expected to open in September this year.

Richard Proctor, from Darcy Spillcare, said: "The opening of this new manufacturing facility stems from Darcy's growth over the last few years and will enable us to meet with the ever increasing demands for our growing range of Environmental Protection products and services.

"By making this move we hope to speed up our supply times, increase our product range and enhance research and development facilities. Overall we believe our launch of the Birkenhead site will improved efficiency and overall allow us to deliver even better customer care."

Darcy Spillcare previously had a distribution depot at Unit 3 in The Odyssey Centre on Corporation Road in Birkenhead, Wirral. The company's manufacturing arm was based in East Malling, Kent.

Darcy was not represented in the deal.
