Safety boot manufacturer kicks off extension works at Alfreton site

Construction is now underway on an extension at Rock Fall’s “Unit 4,” placed on the second generation family-owned safety boot manufacturer’s Wimsey Way site in Alfreton.

Completion is expected in April 2020 and will create an additional 5000 square feet of warehousing space as the firm ramps up stock due to a sustained demand for their range on a variety of national contracts. It will allow them to hold an additional 200 pallet spaces, totalling more than 20,000 pairs.

However, the senior management team are still looking for opportunities to acquire a larger, purpose-built unit in the coming years.

Rock Fall supply some of the largest companies in the world via a network of authorised distribution partners ranging from small independent safety equipment distributors, FTSE 100 PLCs and multi-national organisations. Major distributors include household names like Bunzl, Travis Perkins, Toolstation, Amazon and Arco.
