Big Move for UK Flooring Direct

Big Move for UK Flooring Direct

Online flooring retailer, UK Flooring Direct, has moved to a new facility as it looks towards achieving a £100m turnover.

Situated in Hinckley, Leicestershire, the new facility provides a central location for the business with easy access to major arterial roads, ensuring fast delivery of its flooring to homes and businesses across the UK. With 58,000 sq ft of space, the building houses a showroom, marketing suite, sales centre, customer collection point and five-bay warehouse.

The new warehouse is capable of holding enough stock to ensure UK Flooring Direct has the capacity to achieve its £100m turnover target by improving efficiency and speed of order processing. The initial £750,000 capital outlay in the acquisition and fit-out of the building comes following consistent investment in the company’s operating system, website and insight technologies; totalling £1.25m over the last three years.

Jason Ashby, Managing Director, UK Flooring Direct, commented: “When we launched UK Flooring Direct, we set out with the ambition to become the UK’s largest online flooring retailer and now we have reached that goal, we are determined to keep growing and become one of the country’s largest online retailers full stop. Our previous location was stifling growth, with staff amenities proving inadequate and stock-holding capacity preventing us from maximising sales.

“The new Hinckley site means that we can continue to invest in our people and provide them with incredible working conditions and facilities, as well as sustainably expand product lines and stock levels to meet demand.”
