COMAH Warehousing

H.W. Coates has always invested in the very best vehicles, warehouses and IT.

We have more COMAH sites than anyone else, with high specification warehouses offering clean, quality space with add-ons such as barcode control, temperature control, 24 hour manned security, in-rack sprinklers, decanting and specialist stores.

Chemical warehousing:
Warehousing isn't just storage. It means receipt, repacking, labeling, stock control and dispatch. And it means having the right premises: racked, sprinkled,barcode control, temperature controlled, specialist (flammable, peroxide, etc), and signing up to a raft of regulatory and accreditation regimes (see glossary).

High-spec stores:
Our latest warehouse at Middlewich was purpose-built in 2020. It sits on freehold land, was designed and commissioned by a joint Coates - customer team and employs the highest specifications throughout from its FOSROC surface and Atex electrics, to advanced HVAC filtration. The highest quality needs real investment.

Leading edge IT:
We link our operations through a 100-workstation WAN, running linked warehouse, distribution and administrative systems on a central server. This provides high efficiency, accuracy and resilence as well as customer visibility, with online PODs, digital signature capture and telematics.

Full Coverage:
15 sites in the UK,including 10 COMAH sites at Middlewich (x2), Newmarket, Rugby (x2) , Shrewsbury (x2), Grangemouth and Lincoln (x2). Transport for classes 1.4s, 2, 3, 4, 5.1, 5.2, 6.1, 8 & 9.
