ABP King’s Lynn secures vermiculite contract

ABP’s Port of King’s Lynn has secured a new contract with the crude vermiculite distributor company, Palabora Europe Limited, following the port’s investment in a new £30,000 bagging plant to further expand the services it provides. Palabora Europe Limited is a supplier of crude vermiculite to a range of industries in the UK that use the material in fire protection, plasters, renders and lightweight concretes in the construction industry.

Palabora Europe Limited, Commercial Director Richard Knight, said: “As our product is shipped to the UK via Belgium, we were looking for a suitable location on the East Coast capable of providing us with space to meet current demand and future business growth.

“We chose the Port of King’s Lynn because of its proximity to our customer base in the Midlands, its focus on quality, safety and compliance and the extensive services it provides, which include everything from product handling and storage to bagging and distribution.” 


Kim Kennedy, ABP King’s Lynn Port Manager, said: “We are delighted to welcome Palabora as a new customer in King’s Lynn and look forward to providing them with the best location for their thriving business operations. We invested in the new bagging plant at the port to ensure we can provide a full turnkey solution to our customers.”

“Together with the ABP’s other two East Anglian ports of Lowestoft and Ipswich, King’s Lynn plays a vital role in supporting the regional economy and local jobs and we look forward to continuing to do so in future.”
