Kelkay improves stockholding and site

Kelkay is spending £1m on new machinery.

The manufacturer and distributor of aggregates and paving is spending the money to complete the commissioning of the Pollington, East Yorkshire plant, meaning Kelkay can increase efficiency, improve its products and enhance customer service.

In 2014, Liam Walsh became Kelkay sales manager, Spencer Goodall took over the South West of England sales division and ARC Southern was appointed to manage Kelkay’s South East sales division.

Kelkay moved into its purpose built head office on their Pollington site last year along with opening up further acreage for increased stock holding. The expanding site is providing storage for back up stock, currently at 50,000 pallets which is 30 per cent more than this time last year. In addition to this Kelkay has 75,000 tonnes of aggregate stock piled on its premises.

Kelkay managing director Antony Harker said: "This investment is great news for Kelkay customers. I believe maintaining product availability especially as the popularity of hard landscaping products continues to soar is paramount in providing an unrivalled service. It has played a very important part in Kelkay’s success and should continue to secure our position as a market leader in the long term."
