Specialist construction materials supplier, SIG Distribution has opened a new state-of-the-art, 169,000 sq ft warehouse in Heathrow, West London.
The site became fully operational from Monday 18 May 2020.
It replaces two existing SIG Distribution sales offices – Ruislip and Heathrow – and the increased stock holding it offers will improve customer service levels.
Philip Johns SIG Managing Director UK says: “With the opening of the SIGD West London site we are well positioned to offer an increased level of support to our customers during these challenging times for the industry.”
Since his appointment in April this year, Johns has been keen to drive the business to support its customers by the re-opening of sites across the SIG Distribution network, he says. “We have a great spread of sites across the UK and with flagship distribution centres in Manchester and now at Heathrow, we can offer an unrivalled stock holding across all of our product areas. Our goal is to ensure that we are able to supply the products our customers want, when they need them.”
The company is continuing with the phased re-opening of their sites following their temporary closure at the end of March.
