Cold store specialist reports revenues of £30m

ISD Solutions, a specialist contractor in the design and construction of composite panel cold store warehouses, has announced a 10% rise in turnover to £30m.

The company, which has ongoing contracts with leading grocery groups including Aldi, Waitrose, Morrisons and Ocado to provide both warehouse and in-store cold storage facilities, said it was lifted by new orders in its traditional UK business sectors, but also an increase in export sales.

Gloucester-based ISD has secured new distribution agreements with local partners in the growing India and East African markets to spearhead its growth in the sub-continent, while the company will be consulting and project managing the set-up of large cold store supply chain project infrastructures as well as its successful modular solutions overseas.

International orders have also led to a 24% increase in bespoke manufacturing for doors, panels, metal works and stowaway shelving over the previous two years, an 8% improvement from last year.

Andy Moon, CEO of ISD Solutions, comments: “We entered 2015 on the back of an extremely strong period and are confident of at least 10% to 15% growth in most markets this year, fuelled by strong demand, both home and abroad.

“Our strategic focus on quality, customer service and robust financial control continue to generate significant interest, with 90% of our projects representing repeat business from leading contractors, satisfied customers and partners. This is testament to our focus on building relationships and the quality and dedication of our staff.”
