Back in January we opened our new warehouse at our HQ in Trawden. The warehouse came from ERDF funding granted in 2013 – funding we’d never have received if it wasn’t for going through the Growth Accelerator programme. Built by Dale Contractors the warehouse has been designed with surroundings in mind; matching the current set up and complimenting the stunning views that we’re seeped in being based in rural Lancashire.
Successful growth both domestically & in Europe meant our previous set up just wasn’t big enough – with more orders coming in, from more people wanting more products we simply needed more space for stockholding.
“Without the warehouse, which has doubled our capacity for stockholding, we couldn’t have done what we wanted in terms of growth”, said our Managing Director Glenn Dunleavey on January 17th when we officially opened the new space in-front of representatives from local governing bodies and authorities. Andrew Pendle MP our local MP for Pendle did the honours cutting the ribbon and said “seeing a small business like this expand, take on more people work towards more exprts, is really really encouraging”.
Since it opened the warehouse has helped us tenfold. Allowing us to hold more stock & honor more & larger orders we’ve expanded our team to meet the demands of our customers taking on Warehouse Apprentice Bradley Entwistle.
