Specflue’s Northern depot marks first anniversary

Specflue has celebrated the first birthday of its Castleford depot and 12 months trading in the North.

Since opening last August, Specflue reports a 20 percent increase in sales in the areas it distributes to from the West Yorkshire site, having previously served the entire UK from its base in Sudbury, Suffolk.

Managing director, Jeremy Fry, said: “We opened the outlet in the north to enable us to service customers based in the Midlands, all the way up to the Scottish border. 12 months on and Castleford has proven to be a success, with flue and wood burning stove sales increasing, verifying that we made the right decision to invest in a new depot.

“We chose Castleford as it is a pivotal point in the UK with excellent transport links. Our new depot can not only be accessed by customers, but also allows us – through our fleet of service vehicles – to fulfil our next day delivery service pledge.”
