A £1million+ investment in a new, purpose-built distribution centre in Thurrock is the first phase of a strategic development plan from International Decorative Surfaces (IDS), to further strengthen the company’s position in south-east England.
The new depot, which opened in June, is situated at Logistics City in Thurrock, with an impressive 792,000 cubic feet of warehousing space. The Thurrock site represents an 82% increase in stockholding space and a 54% increase in the number of SKUs with over £1million worth of key products in worktops, laminates, solid surface, panel products, flooring and wall panelling.
Speaking of the news, John Bagshaw, Managing Director of IDS says, “This strategic undertaking in the south-east demonstrates our ongoing commitment to grow by helping our customers and suppliers grow. Our surface portfolio is constantly developing, bringing the latest product innovations to market, and it’s really important to us that we continue to meet and exceed customer expectations. This new facility at Thurrock is key to providing the high level of service our customers expect, with a wider depth and breadth of products that we’ve ever been able to stock before to service the south-east.”IDS | idsurfaces.co.uk
