Cold Storage

The Sadel Group has several holdings in the cold storage sector with the aim to develop this fundamental part of the food supply chain.


Temperature Controlled Storage

The Sadel Group began to amalgamate temperature-controlled storage businesses in 2011, noticing a sharp decline in national availability and the likelihood of that trend continuing as older infrastructure is shuttered due to cost and environmental inefficiency.

The result of these efforts is Magnavale, an industry leader in the space and a trusted name amongst many of the largest and most influential manufacturers and retailers.

The expansion of Magnavale to fill the demand for cold storage and associated services across Europe is a key issue for Sadel Group.

The Sadel Group’s primary vehicle for development in the cold storage sector is the Magnavale brand of cold stores located in the Midlands and rapidly expanding to fill market requirement.


Magnavale Chesterfield, located within easy access of the M1 and major redistribution sites, the Chesterfield location boasts 40,000 pallet spaces and a full range of services. In addition, a further 23,000 pallet positions are being added, making the facility a valuable resource for the food manufacturing sector in the UK and Europe.


Strategically located near the port of Grimsby, Magnavale Scunthorpe spans over 650,000 sq ft with over 60,000 pallet locations. 


Magnavale Warrington is in a prime position for efficient access to major distribution centres within the UK and has been recently upgraded, accommodating a further 8,000 frozen pallet positions. This remarkable upgrade brings the site’s total capacity to an impressive 38,000 pallets.


Magnavale Easton, located in Grantham, offers 44,000 pallet locations with essential added value services. The facility is currently undergoing a groundbreaking transformation and will feature a fully automated 101,000 pallet cold store run entirely on renewable energy.


Magnavale is also expanding in other key strategic locations where it can look to build fully automated facilities in either close proximity to end users, manufacturers or at key points of import and export.
