Alpha LSG, the largest Inflight Catering, Onboard Retail and Logistics company in the UK, has announced a move to new state-of-the-art premises on the impressive ICON Manchester Airport City site.
It will be home to its Bonded Warehouse operation and, at 102,500 sq ft, is almost double the size of its existing facility. Coupled with Alpha LSG’s Flight Catering Unit, the new-look set-up secures the company’s future in the Manchester region.
With a 7,500 sq ft office block, it also represents Alpha LSG’s step towards innovative and exciting technological initiatives.
The building will be certified by BREEAM©, the world’s leading sustainability assessment method for master-planning projects, infrastructure and buildings. BREEAM rated developments are more sustainable environments that enhance the well-being of the people who live and work in them, as well as helping to protect natural resources.
Alpha LSG is also using the police initiative ‘Secure by Design’ as the blueprint for robust security. All of the processes and designs used will be benchmarked to the initiative which improves the security of buildings and their immediate surroundings to provide safe places to live, work and visit.
“This new building is a significant investment in our future in Manchester and beyond,” said Alex Forbes, Alpha LSG’s Chief Executive Officer. “We see this as an opportunity to launch lots of new improved initiatives across our entire network such as agile working, wellbeing in the workplace and interactive communications to name but a few.”
He added: “Over the next 12 to 18 months we will have a dedicated implementation team working to ensure a smooth transition to our new building which we anticipate will be open and operational by winter 2020.”
