Here at Fishpools, we’ve recently completed an expansion of the warehouse at our Hertford based Distribution Centre. This is a very exciting time for us as it means we’re able to offer our customers even more products from stock and expand our quick delivery service.
Before the expansion, the warehouse measured an already impressive 60,000 square feet. Following the completion of the work, we’ve now had a fantastic 35% increase in capacity to help us provide better service than ever! We’re looking forward to filling up the space with our fantastic range of furniture and home accessories – just for you.
We began work on this challenging project back in July 2016. Working on a building site hasn’t been easy for our staff, but the fantastic people at the warehouse have managed to keep it running like clockwork, keeping disruption to a minimum for our customers. Now it’s complete, it’s all been worth it.
Last week, we were able to officially open the new section with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Our very own Managing Director, Simon Fishpool (second left), cut the ribbon and is pictured here with (l-r) Colin Wright of the contractors Hutton Construction, Alice Norris, Operations Director and Sean Dudley, Distribution Centre Manager.
The driving force behind this important investment was a need to increase the number of items we can hold in stock. Although bespoke items will always take time, we want to be able to offer as much choice for immediate delivery as possible. For example the increase in capacity to hold ranges like our hugely popular garden furniture means we can offer many more items from stock then we previously could. Previously, our capacity to hold seasonal stock was limited; this is clearly not the case anymore!
Currently, we are in the process of making the most of our new space. A huge amount of effort effort goes on behind the scenes here once a customer has placed an order with us and we’re sure the new expansion will put us in a position to keep delivering consistently high customer service.
