Waterline invests in new distribution centre

Published:  21 May, 2010

GUILDFORD: To provide a faster, more efficient service to customers south of the Thames, Waterline is opening a new distribution centre in Guildford, Surrey on 1 June.

The warehouse with trade counter will stock 150 top-selling products, including Franke sinks and taps, Crown Oyster carcasses and Essentials ovens, hobs and hoods. Plans for the centre include a showroom at a later date.

Orders will be allocated from extensive stocks of the top kitchen brands held at Waterline headquarters in Newport Pagnell. In addition to daily deliveries from Guildford on 36-hours lead-time, orders placed by 5pm can be collected from the centre on the following afternoon.

Waterline Group chief executive officer, Mike Lawrence, commented: “The opening of the new distribution centre in Guildford forms part of our bouncing-back programme to be the UK’s favourite kitchen distributor.”
