PJH, one of the UK’s largest KBB distributors, has acquired a new purpose-built distribution centre in Wolverhampton, an investment that will see its entire current Cannock operation relocate to the new much larger facility, just 8.3 miles away.
The move to the new Wolverhampton Distribution Centre supports PJH’s rapid growth, and also its commitment to being its customers’ ‘First Choice’ through the continuous improvement of its product and service offerings.
With a sq.ft. of 200,000, the new site is almost double the existing footprint and will support planned product range enhancements, an increase in the already excellent stock availability and further improvements to PJH’s next-day delivery service. In addition, the site will also include a new purpose-built showroom designed to showcase all products to customers. The site is targeted to be fully operational from Summer 2024.
Richard George, CEO, PJH said: “Acquiring the new site represents a considerable investment by PJH and supports further our commitment to be our customers’ ‘First Choice’ as we continue our growth journey. This will be PJH’s flagship distribution centre and the site will benefit from being ultra-modern and is aimed at taking our already fantastic service to the ‘Next Level’. I was keen that we remained in the local area to ensure we retain all our employees, as they are fundamental to the success of our business, so I am delighted that we have found this site in Wolverhampton.”
Once the move is complete, its addition will increase PJH’s total distribution space to 455,000 sq.ft.
