Continued UK investment
As you may have read in the news recently, UK manufacturing growth at 30-year high at the moment and we will continue to invest in the best equipment available to support our UK manufacturing operations. The new SCM Morbidelli drill is now in place in our wood factory which drills boards from all angles, guaranteeing an exceptional quality finish and absolute precision while improving our cycle times. And it’s that good we’ve now taken delivery of a second one!
We’ve now signed off on an 60,000 square foot extension to our warehouse & distribution centre. The building will give us an additional 5,000 pallet locations plus dedicated goods in area, with additional warehouse space to operate at higher levels and offer more choice for our customers. Building work will continue throughout 2021 and we will hopefully take ownership in November/December this year.
