Multi-million-pound warehouse expansion bolsters Port’s market leading role in the UK steel industry

PD Ports has announced a multi-million-pound investment at Groveport in partnership with one of Europe’s fastest growing international steel traders and long-standing customer, All Steels Trading.

This new long-term contract represents the largest single investment in the last decade at Groveport and signifies the next step in PD Ports’ growth strategy as the Port gears up for further expansion to support its growing reputation as the UK’s market leader for handling long steel products.

Construction on the new six-month build programme, which offers direct quay access, started in March and will see All Steels Trading’s footprint at Groveport expand from 166,000 sq. ft to over 300,000 sq. ft.

Once operational, PD Ports’ skilled and experienced team will handle, store and prepare the steel trader’s products ensuring they are available on demand; bolstering All Steels Trading’s customer commitment to short delivery lead-times and value for money.

Laurence McDougall, All Steels Trading Managing Director believes the partnership with PD Ports works because of the unique working relationship.
