Warehouse Space, Pallet Storage, Fulfilment & Courier services in Bolton

Bolton is a town in Greater Manchester, the administrative centre of the Metropolitan Borough of Bolton. It began life as a small settlement called Bolton le Moors, named for the surrounding moorland.

Like many towns in the area, Bolton became a centre for the production of textiles after Flemish weavers settled there in the fifteenth century. Consequently, the town developed significantly during the Industrial Revolution, as the cotton and textile industry rapidly expanded due to mechanization. By 1929, it was one of the world’s largest centre for the production of cotton spinning. It was, however, an industry that declined rapidly after the First World War and within fifty years the cotton manufacturers had all but disappeared from Bolton.

The sportswear company Reebok are based in Bolton and sponsor the local Premier League football club, Bolton Wanderers. World champion boxer Amir Khan, comedian Peter Kay and actor Sir Ian McKellen were all born or raised in the town. Bolton is also home to one of the earliest public libraries established in the Great Britain.
