Wickes Opens Larger Distribution Warehouse in Hemel Hempstead
Wickes Home Improvement Centres, part of Focus Wickes the second largest DIY retailer in the UK, officially opened its new distribution centre in Swallowdale Lane, Hemel Hempstead on Friday 6th February.
Steve Horne, Director of Distribution for Wickes, commented: "Following a full review of our supply chain requirements we identified the need for a larger distribution site in the northern M25 region to sustain our rapidly growing business, and this warehouse provides us with a ready-made solution. Transferring from a smaller site in Hemel Hempstead has allowed us to realign our ongoing network and supplier moves, as well as creating new job opportunities".
The site is managed by Lloyd Fraser who have a long standing relationship with the Focus Wickes Group.
