Self storage company takes over former Lincolnshire Co-op centre

The site had been empty for two years

A self-storage company has taken over the Lincolnshire Co-op food distribution centre for £1.5 million two years after it closed down.

The five-acre business park on Pioneer Way in Lincoln will now be the headquarters of Boulder Developments and web development agency Orisel.

Family company Boulder Developments runs SuperFOIL Insulation, Ventilation Megastore, and Boulder Storage.

The self-storage business will create several new jobs in the area now that it’s open.

William Bown, director of Boulder Developments, said: “We’ve created several new jobs and we have exciting plans to generate more employment in this area in the coming months.

“The former food distribution centre was a huge, vacant site when we purchased it, but we’re transforming it into a real hub for growing businesses.

“We’re making good use of every part of the site which is helping all of the businesses here to grow, create jobs and opportunities.”

As previously reported, Lincolnshire Co-op confirmed in 2017 that it would make more than 100 staff redundant by closing two of its distribution centres.
