The Glasgow-based business has relocated to a 100,000 square foot unit in Thornliebank Industrial Estate following a £3 million, five-month refurbishment of the property.

Managing director Stephen Russell said the company had been looking to relocate for some time but had difficulty finding the right location.

“As a wholesale business, we’re delivering goods up and down the country five days a week for our customers so being near a central road network was possibly the most important criterion in our search beyond simply the amount of space we would need to manage the handling and transportation of goods,” said Russell. “We have simply outgrown our current unit and this site, with nearly 80,000sq ft of warehousing space on three to four acres of land, will see us well long after I’ve retired.”

The new building was purchased by the Bulloch family, who are majority shareholders of Inverarity Morton, and has been leased to the firm. The previous headquarters, in Pollokshows, is owned by the family and the wholesaler and will be rented out.
