Box Clever is to install a new first-floor level, along with a lift, at its secure warehouse on the Kingstown Industrial Estate.

A second phase of development at Millbrook Road will create additional storage spaces above existing ground-floor units.

Facilities manager Paul Swailes, 50, said they were operating at about 92 per cent capacity and had to expand.

"We've only got about three or four of our 94 units free right now. We've got to the stage where we need another level put in here, otherwise there will be no room for anyone else," he added.

Whitehaven-born Mr Swailes, who lives in Brampton, also oversees Box Clever's other self-storage operation at Embleton, near Cockermouth, at the headquarters of its parent company Caterite, the food and drinks supplier.

Pascal Delorme, managing director of Caterite, said there were also plans for a third stage expansion - involving the installation of a third floor.
