Leading UK bulk liquid storage specialist, UM Terminals, has announced a new interim managing director

Vic Brodrick steps up to the role at Liverpool-headquartered UM Terminals, which he will combine with his existing responsibilities as the company’s commercial director.

Replacing Bryan Davies in the MD role, with Bryan moving to a new position with Associated British Ports, Vic commented: “I am delighted to have been asked to combine the roles of MD and commercial director at UM Terminals.

Expansion plans

“I will be looking to continue to execute the strategic growth plan that we launched in September 2020 maximising our UK capability, harnessing the assets of the wider UM Group, and looking for potential acquisition targets.”

An immediate priority is to identify and onboard customers for a small number of opportunities at its Liverpool sites at Gladstone Dock and Regent Road. There are three tanks available at Gladstone Dock, each 13,200m3, while Regent Road has two tanks available, each 10,750m3.

UM Terminals operates out of 8 terminals, strategically located across the UK, handling over 40 different products including vegetable oils, industrial, food and feed, chemical, fertiliser, fuels, biofuels and base oils.

The bulk liquid specialist currently has a capacity of over 300,000 cubic metres of storage, but the plan is to grow this to over 400,000 cubic metres.

Vic said: “I am excited to be taking on this additional leadership role at UM Terminals, further building our reputation for having a flexible, can-do, customer-centric approach to meeting the supply chain requirements of our customers.”
