Simon has joined the DGTCS team to develop the service offered to permanent build clients

Simon is a well-known name in the food and pharmaceuticals world following 15 years in the temperature controlled industry. In addition to his vast experience, DGTCS and you, our customers, will benefit from his extensive business development and project management skills.

Simon said: “One of the main reasons I wanted to join DGTCS was that my personal values are very much aligned with the business; my main aim is to deliver a quality project to those wanting a new build or permanent extension; from concept to completion, I now have access to the vast array of assets and knowledge at DGTCS which will allow me to collaborate and provide the best possible service to customers.

“DGTCS has a solid reputation for its professional, high calibre team. I recognised the focused leadership, resources and high skill-set that existed within the business; together with the ambition that’s felt from the top down. I wanted a challenge and DGTCS has the financial strength to grow in some exciting directions. I wanted to be a part of that.”

Simon will play an essential role in the growth of the firm, focusing our strategy on working with more clients looking for factory extensions and new builds. We expect demand for this service to grow following Brexit as UK companies realise that they need to invest in production and storage to maximise their own processes and efficiencies.

The many industries we work across, including food and drink and pharmaceuticals, are constantly evolving with ever heightening quality standards and increasing levels of compliancy and technical capability. We are now prepared and in good shape to meet the expected demand for factory extensions and new builds.

DGTCS construction builds can be standalone complexes or units which link to existing buildings. They offer a permanent temperature controlled environment. These solutions include the option to add blast or defrost chambers to loading docks to reduce the distance between storage and loading to streamline the process, or production facilities that support the expansion of production lines or introduce new ones. We even have a dedicated in-house team to remove the pressure from you and sort everything from groundworks and construction to lighting.
