BSS expands national distribution centre

BSS Industrial has broken ground on 38,500 sq ft extension of its Magna Park National Distribution Centre (NDC) in Leicestershire.

The company says that investment in its warehouse capacity will increase the regularity of deliveries to its nationwide branch network making a wider range of products available overnight.  It also pledges that any order placed by 5pm will be in-store by the time it opens the next day.

David Rose, divisional supply chain director for BSS Industrial and the Travis Perkins Group Contract Merchanting Division, 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.

“This investment is the next step in continuing to improve BSS’ service offering which we can proudly say is not offered anywhere else in the industry. This logistical support not only gives confidence to customers visiting the trade counters on a daily basis but enables BSS to satisfy the rapid expansion of the industrial market.”

The work to expand the Magna Park Distribution Park is planned to finish in October 2014.
