We established our wholesale business in 2000 and we very much want it to continue to thrive into this century. We will continue to change, modify and improve our operation wherever we can to make a difference.
We choose to do business with and let our property to those who are leading the way in sustainability.
We have agreed a lease with GRIDSERVE for a plot of land we own in Gateshead, Tyne & Wear. GRIDSERVE is an international sustainable energy business, headquartered in the UK. They intend to build a state of the art electric forecourt, which will only be the third of its type in Europe. We are excited to be involved in changing the face of service stations.
We also agreed a deal with Biffa in 2018. We chose Biffa over other potential tenants because of their vision for the site. Today there is a £27.5-million PET plastic bottle recycling facility capable of converting 57,000 tonnes of PET plastic per year – equivalent to 1.3 billion plastic bottles – back into high-purity plastic pellets, to be sold on to manufacturers. We are proud of our part in putting the North East at the heart of recycling capability and creating a more environmentally sustainable future.
