McQueens launches in Warrington
Long established Scottish family firm McQueens Dairies has opened its first base in England– creating 33 jobs.
The doorstep delivery company launched its new depot in Warrington at the Taylor Industrial Estate in Risley.
McQueens Dairies manager Anna McQueen, who is based at the Warrington depot, said: “We are delighted to launch in Warrington and chose the town as our first English base as it is easily accessible for most places in the North West.
“It’s fantastic to be able to create so many new jobs in the region and, as we continue to grow, we’ll be recruiting additional members of staff to join the team. We are very fortunate to have a terrific team of employees on board, as our staff are fundamental to the success we plan to achieve in the area.”
Anna is keen to stress that the services of a modern-day milkman are much more than simply nostalgia. “Milk delivery is very much an important part of communities,” she said. “As well as delivering milk to the doorsteps of thousands of households, we are also making an increasing number of deliveries to office premises.
“Businesses see big benefits in milk being on the doorstep first thing in the morning. Employees never miss out on their first ‘work’ cup of tea or coffee, keeping morale high, and staff members aren’t using business time to go to the shops.”
McQueens Dairies, a third generation family firm, was founded in 1995 and delivers milk to the doorsteps of thousands of residential properties across the UK, as well as providing a service to commercial premises.
