GAP broadens its reach with Wigan opening

Published:  27 November, 2009


LANCASHIRE: Home improvement stockist GAP has opened a depot in Wigan. This latest expansion takes the company's network to a total of 14 sites.

The Wigan depot is claimed to be one the largest roofline stockists in the area carrying the BBA-approved calcium zinc range of Homeline Building Products.

The 6000sq ft warehouse is located near Wigan Pier. It incorporates a fitter-friendly trade counter stocking all the necessary tools, fixings, silicones and other relevant equipment which can simply be collected direct from source without fear of long waits or low stocks.

Simon Bird, joint managing director commented: "Opening a depot in Wigan is already proving popular as it is in a great central location for installers in the area. The expansion will allow local customers receive service without having to travel great distances."
