Wild Water Group, South Wales’ leading provider of bespoke temperature controlled warehousing and distribution services, have continued the rapid expansion of their network with the acquisition of 2 new sites.

This latest announcement follows the report made just last month that the Group had expanded into southwest England during the toughest economic crisis since World War II. The new sites, based in Taunton and Southampton, bring the Group’s acquisitions up to 5 new sites since the turn of 2020 and 8 sites in total.

The Group offers a range of bespoke cold storage and distribution solutions and the latest addition to their service offering now includes bonded warehousing along with their increased storage facilities.

Wild Water recently detailed their areas of focus for 2021, including supporting customers’ with their export initiatives to global markets. The Group is part of a cold storage and supply chain alliance with GSL (part of the Al Shirawi Group Of companies) and GAC (a leading global shipping and logistics company).

The company’s growing network now boasts sites from Aberbargoed and Merthyr in the South Wales valleys, to the major cities of Cardiff, Newport, Bristol, and Plymouth. With the addition of Taunton and Southampton, the Group can further their distribution, cross docking, and export scope to cater for their customers’ changing needs following Britain’s exit from the EU.

Ken Rattenbury, founder and Group Managing Director of the Wild Water Group has led his senior management team to carefully and creatively find new avenues for growth during a turbulent global financial crisis. He comments, “We’re really pleased with the rate that we have been able to deliver on our 2021 goals to expand into southern England and thereby provide our customers with more options to suit their operational needs.”

The expansion has seen the Group’s capacity increase to over 56,000 frozen pallets, 6,000 chilled pallets, and 10,000 ambient pallets, as well as a significant increase in their blast freezing capacity.
