    Ironmongery Direct and Electrical Direct completes major distribution centre expansion and adds 1000’s of new products

    IronmongeryDirect,
    and sister company ElectricalDirect has completed a major expansion
    project, to house 1000’s more new products whilst expanding its customer
    proposition. Part of the Manutan European Group, IronmongeryDirect and
    ElectricalDirect is the UK’s largest supplier of ironmongery and
    electrical products to the trade.

    A new 100,000 sq ft
    warehouse, which is the equivalent of two football pitches, will now house over
    30,000 products for both IronmongeryDirect and its co-brand ElectricalDirect
    all available for next day delivery. The new facilities will also have
    2,000 pallet storage locations.

    Managing Director
    of the Manutan Traders Division, Wayne
    Lysaght-Mason, commented: “We took the decision to double the size of our
    warehouse in order to continue our 20% year on year growth, cement our market leading
    proposition and drive ambitious range extension. Whilst giving our sister brand
    ElectricalDirect a strong base for growth.

    “At the same time,
    we have expanded our call centre, while all other departments have been moved
    into modern, purpose-built office space.”

    The
    new warehouse officially opened on Thursday 17th January by Xavier
    Guichard, Chief Executive Officer at Manutan Group and Wayne
    Lysaght-Mason. They were also joined by the rest of the Manutan Group
    Management Board, along with over 200 staff to celebrate this significant
    landmark.

    Wayne added:
    “IronmongeryDirect will now benefit from an upgraded and expanded distribution
    centre, enabling an improved customer experience. The expansion will improve
    all areas of the business, providing a major boost for our revenue and
    profitability growth.”

    The
    expansion also allows the organisation to bring in the fulfilment of ElectricalDirect
    orders under one roof, enabling the service and product range to be greatly
    improved.

    Wayne
    concluded: “Our customers can expect to receive the same great service,
    ordering up to 8.00pm 7 days a week for next day delivery, but with the
    addition of a number of new and exciting products which will further complement
    our already market leading range”.

    2019 IronmongeryDirect is also celebrating its 50th year
    supplying architectural ironmongery to tradespeople. Starting out as a
    traditional ironmongers, today customers can browse over 17,500 products in the
    catalogue and online.
