Sister companies MM Flowers and MMUK (Grape) are preparing to move from their current base at Chatteris to a dedicated new facility at Alconbury Weald, near Huntingdon, also in Cambridgeshire.
The two companies are part of the global AMC Group which works with growers across 20 countries. The new bespoke building which is being constructed by principal contractor Chalcroft will enable both firms to be housed under one roof. It will feature state of the art insulated panels, together with three state-of-the-art chillers will be installed, that will deliver an efficiency that is 71% higher than the European Eco-Design Directive requirement.
Richard Brannam, Operations Director at MM Flowers, commented, “At the early stages, Chalcroft listened to our objectives and specific requirements for the building, and were able to offer suitable advice. It was important to use a contractor who has experience in bespoke commercial construction projects. We are looking forward to utilising the new facility early next year and are pleased to be working with Chalcroft on this project.”
