McQueens Dairies opens 11th distribution site to meet demand

McQueens Dairies has opened its new distribution depot in Sheffield, the firm's 11th facility, to meet demand for doorstep deliveries.

The new depot in Atlas North Industrial Estate will initially employ 15 milk delivery staff to serve customers living in Sheffield and across South Yorkshire. That number is expected to double during 2021.

Russell Chalkley, Logistics Site Manager, said, “Our new Sheffield distribution centre is our seventh in the north of England. It will join our busy depots in Mansfield, Huddersfield, Warrington, Preston and Stockton on Tees, which we recently opened to meet demand in the north east of England.

“We have already created 15 new jobs at this new depot and we are looking to double that in the next twelve months to accommodate the growth we expect in this year. As well as delivering in Sheffield we’ll also be delivering across South Yorkshire including Barnsley, Doncaster, Worksop and across to Gainsborough as well as south to Chesterfield.”.

In addition to a milk delivery in Sheffield we also deliver alternative milk, orange juice, apple juice and free-range eggs. You can order using the website. As a customer, you have direct control of your orders, are able to book holidays and pay directly.

Ruairidh McQueen, Sales Director, added, “Customers have always been at the heart of our business and who have made it the success it is. We still deliver milk to people who have been customers since we started the company 25 years ago.

'McQueens Dairies remain committed to giving every customer, old and new, the very best service and product in the market. We hope people enjoy having their milk deliveries in Sheffield again.”

The business was founded in 1995 by Mick (chairman) and Meg McQueen. It now operates eleven distribution depots in Scotland and north of England, employing over 600 members of staff. The couple’s five children now hold senior positions within the business.
