Capital Cooling to move all warehouse and logistical capabilities to Northants

In a significant restructure of the business, commercial refrigeration specialists Capital Cooling, which has operated from just outside of Edinburgh since 1996, is to move all warehouse and logistical capabilities to Northamptonshire over the coming months.

Capital Cooling CEO Steve Steadman, said: “While Capital Cooling will always have roots in Scotland it was clear to see that the operational side of the business was simply in the wrong part of the country.

“More than 80% of our deliveries take place south of the border and by shipping all goods to Edinburgh to then return them back down south for delivery was not only poor for efficiency but also for our environmental impact.”

A new operational hub, a 26,000 square foot new build facility just off the A14 in Kettering, will serve the entire UK. It will be home to 24,000 square feet of warehousing while a showroom and 2,000 square foot of office space will be used by the southern based members of the team.

This move also allows the business to exit the existing head office just outside of Edinburgh with the team moving to a more modern and sustainable facility just three miles away within the industrial hub of Livingston.

Steadman added: “The goal of this plan was to secure the long term future of the business and ensure job security for all members of the team. We have succeeded in doing so and we will continue to have our Finance, Sales, Marketing, Warranty and Customer Service departments all operating from our new Livingston office while anyone effected by the relocation has been offered an alternative position.”

In order to facilitate the business’ relocation from Broxburn to Kettering, the business will now trade from a new corporate entity. However, the business will continue to operate as usual. The relocation will be staged over a number of weeks.
