GAP's Hemel depot: bringing in business.

Filling a GAP in Herts

Published:  04 May, 2009

HEMEL HEMPSTEAD: Since the opening of GAP's warehouse in Hemel Hempstead in February, it has become the fastest growing depot in the home improvement stockist's history.

Despite difficult economic conditions Hemel Hempstead is performing above all expectations with 200 credit accounts now opened.

Richard Cockett, GAP's southern business development manager commented: "Everyone who visits the depot comments on the efficiency and friendliness of the staff. The success must also be attributed to the hard work and commitment shown by the entire team since we opened."

GAP customer Carlos Camino of Grovewood Home Improvement, said: "We were astonished by the range of products available from GAP. It has enabled us to diversify and bring new products on board, especially in tough times. Since GAP came to town I have added solar panels, Firestone EPDM flat roofs to my product portfolio."
