Distributor Entatech UK Ltd has announced the opening of its new warehouse expansion in Telford, Shropshire.
The construction of the warehouse began in the latter half of 2012 and came as part of a £1 million investment, which has provided the distributor with an extra 3,000 pallet spaces. It's the first extension Entatech has made to the warehouse since 1997.
Jon Atherton, Entatech Director (pictured right, next to owner Jason Tsai), commented: “We’re extremely pleased to have the new section of our warehouse up and running. As part of our ongoing growth plans, we’re securing agreements with more vendors every year, therefore greatly increasing our product portfolio.
"With more pallet spaces we will not only be able to allocate for these products, but will also be able to run a more efficient warehouse, increasing the customer service we provide. We’ve taken on more warehouse staff over the past few months and I’m confident this will become a fruitful investment for Entatech in the long run."
Richard Morris, Entatech Warehouse Manager, added: “Over the past two years we have doubled the amount of online orders we receive on a daily basis. This growth reflects just how much we needed the additional space for storing and picking the extra products. With online sales continuing to increase in 2013, this extra space will be quickly maximised."
The opening of Entatech’s warehouse expansion follows the launch of the company’s new office, Entatech South, in Leatherhead.
Entatech distributes over 9,500 products from more than 75 vendors, listed on Entatech’s e-commerce website Entaonline.com.
