BSS Industrial has broken ground at its established Magna Park National Distribution Centre (NDC) in Leicestershire, to extend its warehouse space by a further 38,500 square feet.
The investment to boost the capacity of the warehouse will increase the regularity of deliveries to its nationwide branch network making a wider range of products available overnight. This means that any order placed by 5pm will be in-store by the time it opens the next day.
It is also expected that the newly expanded facility will create up to six jobs for workers in the local area.
Divisional supply chain director for BSS Industrial and the Travis Perkins Group contract merchanting division, David Rose, said: 'The Magna Park NDC has provided customers with unrivalled product availability for over a decade; this expansion will allow BSS to offer an even wider range of solutions within this incredibly short timescale.
The work to expand the Magna Park Distribution Centre started in March 2014 and is expected to be complete in October 2014.
