The extensive expansion of Van der Lee Seafish was completed in August. At the beginning of this year, the foundation was laid for the construction of a completely new 1,200 m2 cold storage warehouse. The warehouse is now operational and can store 3,500 pallets (over 2,000 tonnes of products). After the fire in April 2018, the decision was made to construct a new building and to significantly expand the cold storage capacity. In total we can now place more than 6,000 pallets. The production area for crumbed and pre-fried products has also been considerably increased by 1,300 m2 and on the first floor a 1,500 m2 dry storage area has been created for herbs, spices, coatings, ingredients, and packaging material.
The new distribution area is equipped with three loading docks. All production processes, storage, and order processing now take place under one roof making us more flexible and highly efficient and enabling us to serve our clients even better. The necessary expansion of capacity is a direct result of the expansion of our product range and the increase in the number of clients from different market segments.
