Our client has a brand new terminal facility on a 5-acre dockside site in Liverpool, which is handling bulk chemicals and palletised goods for various end use industries.
The facility forms part of a UK chemical importer and distributor. It aims to handle 300,000 metric tons p.a. by 2020, utilising Pneumatic Discharge equipment, dedicated silos, warehouses and the latest high speed packing equipment, operating 24 hours a day.

• Maintaining appropriate supplies of spares parts.
• Troubleshooting and rectifying faults.
