On Sunday 24th September 2017 DBD picked up the keys to a new Central Appliance Distribution Centre located just round the corner from DBD HQ!
As you can see from the photos above and below it is an extremely large space, some 27,000 sq ft which means it will be used as our central distribution centre to support our regional distribution centres across our operating area. It will also provide space for the expected growth in Kitchen too.
In addition, our Central DC will become the new home for a number of our teams, including transport, site coordination, appliance operations, project management and procurement. This will allow for DBD HQ to be refurbished and give the remaining teams staying at DBD HQ room to grow (Accounts, Sales, HR, IT, Kitchens & Corporate.)
Check out the map to see how close it is…
So what does it mean for you?
- Access to the largest stockholding of Appliances dedicated for the Housebuilder / Main Contractor anywhere in the UK.
- Improved on-site service from our expanding Project Management Team.
- The Appliance packaging will be processed at our state of the art recycling facility meaning that less than 1% goes to landfill.
Once fully operational in the new year I look forward to welcoming you at Central DC for a Tour and to meet our fabulous team.
In the meantime I hope you have a successful Q4 and that we can assist you in meeting your completion deadlines.
