Staff at the catering equipment supplier gathered around the entrance to their new warehouse in celebration of their significant site expansion.
The Stockport based site has expanded from 20,000 sq ft, to over 30,000 sq ft in a deal worth over half a million pounds.
The red ribbon was cut by Managing Director Henry Stephenson alongside commercial Director Julian Lewis-Booth and Chairman Michael Stephenson.
The expansion follows growing demand from bars and restaurants in the north west, and in particular Manchester, who rely upon Stephensons for catering equipment supplies.
Henry Stephenson said: "We have recorded good growth over the last five years and, as such, our site capacity has been severely stretched during busy seasonal periods.
"The expansion of our facility in Stockport will ease some of this pressure, allowing us to re-organise our picking locations to improve warehouse efficiency.
"With reduced warehouse pressure, our customers will receive an improved service, as well as even better prices as a result of our increased buying capability.
"We had begun seeking more space elsewhere, so we are very pleased with this expansion as there will be no significant impact for our staff or for the large number of customers who like to use our cash and carry.
"After 45 successful years at our current location, I'm delighted we have been able to take steps to ensure our premises can grow with us."
Stephensons is an independent, family run, catering equipment supplier with over 140 years experience in the industry.
