State-of-the-art 169,000 sq ft warehouse opens
We are delighted to announce the opening of our new 169,000 sq ft warehouse located at Heathrow, which is now operational supporting customers in the West London Region.
Following 12 months of development this state-of-the-art distribution centre will offer an unrivalled depth and breadth of stock holding, and brings together the teams from our sites in Ruislip and Heathrow which will cease to operate with immediate effect, it will also support our Twickenham site when it re-opens offering additional product availability to these customers.
We have brought together the teams from Ruislip and Heathrow who will, wherever possible continue to work remotely as we adhere to government guidelines around social distancing and hygiene, so you will continue to speak to the same people on the same numbers, with only the operational teams from the two sites working from the new SIGD West London site.
Philip Johns Managing Director SIG UK commented “With the opening of SIGD West London, we are well positioned to support our customers during what are challenging times for the industry. We have to put the customer at the heart of everything we do and having state-of-the-art facilities will enable us to do this with an unrivalled stock holding across all of our product areas, ensuring we can supply the products our customers need when they need them”.
We are also continuing to re-open our sites nationwide to better support our customers. Our Oxford Sales Office is now re-open, Loughborough from 21 May, the Sheffield office which is currently open for collections only, will start with a delivery service from Tuesday 26 May, our sites at Twickenham and Aberdeen will also re-open on 26 May.
