HBA opens state-of-the-art distribution centre


HBA Distribution moved into a purpose-built, state-of-the-art distribution centre, which is located next door to its original premises on Darkley Road, Keady, Co. Armagh just three weeks before Christmas. On Saturday, January 28, the company threw open the doors of its brand new premises to the public.

From inception to completion, HBA Distribution’s brand-new distribution centre, in Keady took more than three years to complete. For Managing Director, Dermot Haughey the project has been a labour of love.

“The entire project has taken over three years to complete, has involved a lengthy planning process and a huge financial investment, but all of the pain has been well worth it when you stand back and take a closer look at this well-designed building,” Dermot enthused.

In line with design and build best practice every square foot of this new distribution centre is fully utilised, with stock spread across two floors, reaching to the ceiling and accessible from elevating Toyota order pickers.

Looking to the future, the building features an expansion-proof design, which includes a steel structure for an additional upper floor, which can be installed with the minimum of fuss when it’s required.
