Lincoln PPE business invests £500k in new warehouse

A family-run PPE business has invested almost £500,000 into a new warehouse facility in Caistor as the company expands to meet rising demand for its equipment.

Stock PPE currently produces and supplies PPE equipment to hospitals, health care facilities, schools and businesses across the country.

Since March, the Lincoln-based company has grown rapidly, seeing the recruitment of additional warehouse operatives, sales and marketing staff to support their expansion.

The demand for its PPE products, particularly their 70% alcohol hand sanitiser, meant that its existing premises in Hykeham were too small to accommodate new business opportunities. The company has just purchased a warehouse in Caistor as its new home.

The new warehouse is large enough to accommodate the current business and continue their expansion. The investment includes another fully automated bottling machine. Output has now rising to approximately 100,000 litres of hand sanitiser per day.

“Stock PPE has been able to step up at a time when so many people need protective equipment to keep them safe and we are excited about the future.

“Our reputation, both nationally and internationally is growing and we are confident that in the next three years we will need to find an additional 50 members of staff, with more than half of those needed within the next 12 months,” said Group Chief Executive, Liam Chapman.

The company also donated more than £8,000 of hand sanitiser and other protective equipment to charities and organisations across the East Midlands.
