Thomas Bell and Sons, based in Brigg North Lincolnshire have signed a new deal with ABP which will see them invest in a new blending plant at the ABP Port of Immingham.
The blending plant will allow Thomas Bell to create bespoke fertiliser blends, which will in turn increase the range of products it can offer to the marketplace.
The state-of-the-art plant, which opens in January 2017, includes the latest precision measurement technology with multi hopper conveyer systems and a double screen to improve production
efficiency and to provide optimum product quality.
ABP have invested £100,000 in infrastructure to support the new plant alongside their recent £2 million investment of undercover storage at its dedicated Fertiliser Terminal. Thomas Bell has
extended their agreement with ABP to cover this latest investment.
The companies have been working together for over 20 years and this new venture will see Thomas Bell and Sons significantly increase their current annual volumes through Immingham.
ABP Commercial Manager Chris Vause said: “ABP has a long-standing relationship with Thomas Bell and this increased business is extremely beneficial to the port.
“Thomas Bell chose Immingham because of its infrastructure, location and its ability to discharge fertiliser cargoes up to 25,000 tonnes. We are delighted to secure this additional volume.”
Managing Director of Thomas Bell, Andrew Major said: “This investment in additional
infrastructure will complement our existing activities at Immingham, boost production capability and maintain our reputation for ‘port to farm’ excellence. These benefits and cost savings will be
passed on to our customers.
We have become the UK’s largest independent fertiliser importer on the back of our customer service and those values will remain in place’’
As well as investing in the new plant, Thomas Bell will increase its haulage fleet of ten vehicles to meet demand.
