Polish food company move into former Lincoln Co-op Food Distribution Centre

It has moved in at Boulder Business Park

A Polish food company has relocated into a former Lincolnshire Co-op Food Distribution Centre in Lincoln at Boulder Business Park.

The five acre site on Pioneer Way was closed by Lincolnshire Co-op in 2018 before being purchased by Boulder Developments this year. Boulder Developments is a family business which owns the Boulder Business Park and is the parent company of SuperFOIL insulation.

Polish food company Spiżarnia is the leading distributor of Polish products to the British Isles and supplies over 10,000 different food products across the country. The company, which has its HQ in Lubin Poland, will have a cold food store, cross-dock warehouse, truck depot and offices at the site.

Spiżarnia, which also has warehouses in London, Manchester and Ireland, became the latest arrival at the business park, where several other businesses have now established themselves on the site.

The business park became the headquarters of SuperFOIL and Boulder Developments in May 2019 when the companies relocated from Tuxford in Nottinghamshire.

It is also now home to seven companies including SuperFOIL’s sister companies Ventilation Megastore and Boulder Storage, as well as web development agency, Orisel.

Przemyslaw Duklas, Director of Spiżarnia (UK) Ltd, said: “We’re very happy to relocate to these new premises. This place suits perfectly our needs; it has a ramp, big yard and office space. We have been looking for one like this for quite a while now.”

Will Bown, Director of Boulder Developments, added: “We’re really pleased that Spiżarnia has joined us at Boulder Business Park. It seems particularly fitting that they’ve chosen to relocate here, as food distribution is a big part of the site’s history.

“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 which is bringing new life to this part of the city. We’re making good use of every part of the five acre site which is helping all of the businesses here to grow, create jobs and support the local economy.”

Office space, an arctic trailer yard, 1.2 acres of land and a 10,000ft² butchery at the site are still available for rent.
