Draper forges ahead with warehouse expansion

Published:  17 July, 2009

EASTLEIGH: Hampshire-headquartered Draper Tools is celebrating 90 years of supplying the construction industry. The company has now opened…


a modern warehouse in North Baddesley, giving 100 000sq ft of extra high-bay storage space, in addition to the 400 000sq ft available at Draper’s existing sites.

This warehouse, said the company, will enable it to roll out its future product range expansion and continue to hold large quantities of popular lines – ensuring continuity of supply.

The additional product ranges planned for this warehouse (some not previously sold by the company) will help Draper with its ambitions of being a single source supplier.
