We operate from 3 modern purpose built sites offering excellence at competitive prices, through investment in technology and our dedicated team.
1989 – The beginning
Salisbury Poultry is privately owned by Raj Mehta MD, the founder. The company started in Darlaston, West Midlands with 10 employees, supplying both local wholesalers and restaurants. Within a short period the company had grown to 35 employees with a turnover of £5 million. In 1997, the continued growth led the company to purchase larger premises in Hare Street, Bilston. This new facility was completely refurbished to the highest standards over the next 9 months at a cost of £1.5 million and bought new customers and more employees. Continued commitment allowed the company to grow and expand.
2000 – Growing into the new millennium
In 2000, the company expanded further and the second site based at Field Street, Bilston, occupying 25,000 ft was purchased.
These premises which consist of 2 separate facilities have been utilised to produce thigh meat and EU products, adding further to the range of products that we are able to offer.
2008 – Further growth and acquisition of premises at Vulcan Road
With continued growth over the coming years, the company acquired its third site in 2008, at a cost of £1.3 million, sited adjacent to the existing Hare Street facility in Vulcan Road. Over the next 18 months this site was refurbished to provide production facilities including a cutting hall, cold stores, holding freezers, chillers, retail packing areas, intake and a distribution centre. In addition, the Company has heavily invested in computer controlled equipment and new technology
We moved into our current offices based in Vulcan Road in 2010, creating an advanced administration centre to serve both new and existing customers more readily.
2014 – The future
At the start of 2014 the decision was made to close Hare Street which had been operating since 1989, to allow the refurbishment of the site. The modernisation has been completed and the site has now reopened offering greater production capacity.
Presently, Salisbury Poultry operates from three modern sites, having grown its turnover from £5 million in 1999 to in excess of £60 million in 2014 with a workforce of 400 full time employees. After years of successful growth, the Company has continued with strong values, an excellent customer base along with financial stability and a strong and knowledgeable workforce.
The Company’s resources are built around the ability to supply our customers to meet their requirements, specification, presentation and volume at the required time.
You will see from our Product Range that it is extensive and we are able to adapt to customer needs. We believe, such flexibility, capability and commitment is the unique combination that makes customers choose Salisbury Poultry as their poultry partner.
