Frontier's new Lincolnshire hub will improve service for farmers across the region.
Earlier this week Frontier marked the official opening of a new and upgraded ‘hub’ at Bourne in Lincolnshire.
A significant investment of more than £1m has been made to upgrade Frontier’s site at Bourne. Improvements include an extended ‘higher tier’ COMAH registered crop protection store (with 891 pallet spaces), new office accommodation, meeting facilities and delivery vehicles; all of which will help Frontier provide a more efficient service to farmers in surrounding regions.
Andrew Flux, commercial strategy director for Frontier, said: “Bourne has been developed to meet the needs of our growing number of agronomy customers and the Frontier team that supports them. The hub will be the base for Frontier’s regional commercial, agronomy and operational teams.
”This is the latest in a number of regional hubs that we have developed. Having strategic hubs helps us deliver faster, more efficiently and with more flexibility to the farmers we provide advice and service to. This investment will help us meet the needs of our customers both in the immediate area and in the regions beyond because it will carry strategic stock enabling us to quickly transfer supplies to our other smaller stores.”
The official opening was attended by local farmers who enjoyed a tour of the new site and facilities. The occasion was marked with a ribbon cutting ceremony performed by Richard Banks.
Richard was Banks-Cargill Agriculture chairman and is a current non-executive director of Frontier.
Richard Banks cut the ribbon to mark the official opening at Bourne on Monday 25th February 2019.
