Published:  10 September, 2009


ROMSEY: Elliots Romsey started trading from its new premises this week.

The company purchased the former printing works next door to its existing site to double the size of the branch.


Kevin Dady, the branch manager, said work has started to convert the old store to a large general warehouse. "This will involve gutting the existing shop-showroom area and then installing new racking to accommodate new stock line, this work is scheduled to take approx 6-8 weeks and should coincide with the completion of all civil engineering works out side and the relocation of timber racks."

The completion date for all work is the end of October if all goes to plan, Mr Dady said.
