Builder’s merchant Travis Perkins has begun operations from its brand new regional distribution centre (RDC) in the Appleton area of Warrington.
This means all 150 branches in the region can now promise customers in the North West that if a product is not already in stock, it will be there by the next day. Those branches will also be able to offer a full tool and equipment hire service.
CEO Andrew Harrison said: “We’re incredibly excited about what this means for our customers. As their local timber and builder’s merchant we can provide them with the largest possible range of quality materials, available at a time to suit them.
The 11 acre site will also support staff training and skillset development from a purpose built, state-of-the-art branch service centre.
