This story is over

Industrial services company Able UK has secured a £25 million contract with BMW, allowing the German car maker to create a new import and vehicle storage base on the banks of the Humber in North East Lincolnshire.

The lucrative deal will see the development of facilities which will include a 4,300 square metre Pre-Delivery and Inspection facility on Able Humber Port, adjacent to Rosper Road in North Killingholme.

When completed by the end of 2017, the project will provide around 100 jobs and provide storage for over 10,000 vehicles on an approximate 60-acre site close to Immingham Docks.

Grimsby-based GBA Group will operate the facility, which will be provided by Able.

Executive chairman of Able, Peter Stephenson, said: “This is a major step forward in the development of Able Humber Port.

“We already have well-established large-scale vehicle and storage facilities and this new contract involves a further £25 million investment.”

Able is continuing development work, developing more land on Able Humber Port including construction of the link road for its Able Logistics Park project, which covers over 1,200 acres with full planning permission in place for the creation of extensive warehousing, external storage and transportation depots.

ALP will also offer a purpose-built business park providing office facilities for businesses operating across a range of activities.
