Hazchem Safety Announces Seven-Figure Investment in Warehouse Expansion


Aberdeen-based Offshore specialist Hazchem Safety, a leading provider of safety solutions and personal protective equipment (PPE), has announced its expansion with a significant seven-figure investment in a new state-of-the-art building in Buckingham, England, solidifying its commitment to meeting the evolving needs of its customers and accommodating future growth.


Extending the offering of its Dyce trade counter and warehouse, the new Southern facility sees a significant increase in square footage, effectively doubling both the warehouse and office space. The warehouse has expanded from 11,000 square feet to 30,000 square feet, allowing Hazchem Safety to store up to £5 million worth of stock. This substantial expansion ensures that the company can cater to a larger volume of customers, while significantly reducing stock-outs and improving lead times.


Marlon Douglass, Sales Manager, Hazchem Safety, said: "We are excited to unveil our expanded premises, which represents a significant milestone in Hazchem Safety's journey. The increased warehouse space and stockholding capacity will enable us to meet the growing demands of our customers, improve our operational efficiency, and ensure an even higher level of service excellence. It is a key part of our business growth as it allows Hazchem to take on new larger contracts as we support our customers that require a greater volume of PPE solutions for their employees.”


The warehouse expansion not only facilitates increased stock capacity but also opens up opportunities for additional growth in the southern region by over 100%, with the capability to cater to new contracts from large energy companies. The new facility allows Hazchem Safety to double its current stock holding over time, positioning the company as a leading supplier in the industry.


In addition to the enhanced warehousing capabilities, the expanded premises include a spacious showroom and meeting room, designed to provide a customer-centric environment. Customers can now visit Hazchem Safety's southern premises to explore a wide range of PPE solutions, view samples, and collaborate with the company's expert team to design bespoke garments. This investment in a dedicated space reflects Hazchem Safety's commitment to providing exceptional customer service and ensuring that clients have access to the latest safety innovations.

Hazchem offers its own range of ORKA® Technical Workwear – a range of flame retardant and hi-vis workwear designed for the offshore oil and gas industries and its HAZTEC® technical workwear brand.
