ELLAND: Bond It, the manufacturer of adhesives, grouts, sealants and other building chemicals, has unveiled a new warehouse at its West Yorkshire headquarters. Representing an investment of over £1million and creating seven new jobs, the warehouse will be used to help service growing demand for the company’s products.
The new warehouse was officially opened by Craig Whittaker, Member of Parliament for Calder Valley at a ceremony attended by local celebrities, the press, the Bond It team and representatives from one of the manufacturer’s distribution partners, Claude Hellowell.
Measuring over 13,700sqft., the warehouse will take the overall footprint of Bond It’s site to 60,000sqft. As well as significantly increasing the company’s stock holding capacity, it will also allow Bond It to explore new opportunities for international trade. This is a major area of expansion for the business with key export markets already including South Africa, the United Arab Emirates and South Korea.
Commenting on the opening, David Moore, managing director at Bond It, said: “The investment by Bond It into our new warehouse is a major commitment and a direct result of our continued success in a difficult trading climate. We attribute our continued expansion to a combination of great products, exceptional service and a genuine commitment to sound and honest business practices.
“The increased stock holding and product availability we can now offer will facilitate our plans for the future. It will also help us build on a track record that has seen, on average, double digit growth every year for the last decade."
