Manchester based Quayside Group have tripled their capacity through the acquisition of their second warehouse and processing unit in Trafford Park. The business is on track to grow by more than 40% during 2010.

I am delighted to have completed the purchase of this second unit. This investment will allow us to continue our growth and increase our efficiency and the speed in which we can dispatch goods to our customers.

Despite the economic uncertainties and recession the Quayside group has invested £0.5 million in their second warehouse and processing unit increasing their space from 5,000 to 14,000 square feet.

The investment has been made to allow the express clothing company to further increase the speed in which it delivers goods to its customers through faster access to stock and greater capacity for plant and machinery. Quayside already boasts industry leading delivery times through its website Clothes2Order.com for printed and embroidered clothing, and this investment will further enhance the slick process which allows them to personalise and deliver goods within 24 hours.

The expansion will also allow additional office space for the companies’ rapidly growing workforce. Quayside currently employs 23 people in the region and expects to increase the team to 30 by the end of the year.

Michael Conway, Managing Director, said, “I am delighted to have completed the purchase of this second unit. This investment will allow us to continue our growth and increase our efficiency and the speed in which we can dispatch goods to our customers.”

Through their website Clothes2Order.com, Quayside Group is a leading supplier of printed and embroidered clothing for events, promotions and workwear with customers including John Lewis, Sainsbury’s and the BBC who use clothes2order for its easy ordering and speed of delivery.

Quayside is a shining example of a Northwest business achieving national recognition, having been shortlisted in awards such as the Fast Growth Business Awards and the National Business Awards.
