Going for it

Published:  21 October, 2009

BIRMINGHAM: When the going gets tough, the tough get going. This is exactly what Impulse Bathrooms are doing by investing in all aspects of the business to be more than ready for the upturn when it arrives.


The company has invested in larger premises in line with their ambitious growth plans for the next 5-years.



The new warehouse and administration centre provides a more efficient warehouse layout with clear span for ease of stock handling and a larger area for an increased stockholding. Offices are of a modern design to aid staff communication and a new IT system has also been integrated for control of stock, deliveries and invoicing.



Space has also been allocated for a showroom which will be added in spring following the introduction at the KBB Show of a host of new product developments.



Gary Hawkins, general manager of Impulse Bathrooms says “We feel that now is the time to invest in the company’s infrastructure in the UK. The new premises will give us the extra space we will need when the market picks up again after the country’s current financial difficulties. We believe that service is a vital element in the bathroom market and have made this commitment to our customers with increased stockholding, new product development, high quality literature and an increase in the sales team. I think we will surprise a few people at the KBB Show with a host of new products we are developing including more water saving WC’s new suites and a well being range."
