Crown backs Hull with massive investment

Crown Paints has opened a new state-of-the-art raw material and packaging warehouse facility at its Hull manufacturing base. 

The warehouse, located at Crown Paints’ Sculcoates Lane site, is the result of a £4.4 million investment by Crown Paints and creates an additional 4,265 square metres of storage space for raw materials and packaging. 

Crown Paints’ operation in Hull is the company’s major UK water-based paint production site.  

The new facility enables the paint manufacturer to consolidate its operations from several older buildings into one modern facility – and in doing so allows Crown to repurpose the existing buildings to accommodate future growth. 

Ellis Mudd, Manufacturing Director at Crown Paints said: “The new multi-million-pound Hull warehouse creates much-needed additional storage space for raw materials and packaging, allowing us to increase our manufacturing output and improve efficiencies. 

“Not only that, but the new modern infrastructure which includes over 500 solar panels contributes significantly to our sustainability strategy.”

“We will continue to make significant investments in our manufacturing capability as part of a commitment to the long-term future of our facilities.”
