BSS' National Distribution Centre at Magna Park.

BSS’ Magna Park NDC extends its service even further

Published:  28 April, 2015

BSS Industrial has announced that the expansion of its Magna Park National Distribution Centre (NDC) in Leicestershire is complete, giving customers access to £50m worth of stock and delivery options that no one else on the market can offer.

The state-of-the-art facility, which guarantees next day delivery by 7am when ordered from any BSS or Hire-It branch before 5pm, is said to offer a more comprehensive and widely-available range of products than any other market competitor. The extensive range of top named brands is readily-available thanks to an additional 38,500 square feet at the warehouse, as well as streamlined links with BSS’ other NDC at Cross Point in Coventry.

A newly developed engineering assembly station and machine workshop has also been constructed for seamless product delivery and improved product testing capabilities. This means customers can enjoy even faster dispatch times across a variety of grade A, fully machine-conditioned stock, and ‘to order’ products.

Training and development is also at the heart of the extended facility, which boasts a fully equipped BOSS training room and mock trade counter. The innovative training spaces are available for customers wishing to become familiar with the own brand’s high-quality solutions, while running internal courses to boost the knowledge and service provided by its own trade counter teams.

David Rose, divisional supply chain director for BSS Industrial and the Travis Perkins Group Contract Merchanting Division, said: “This expansion reflects a huge investment from BSS in providing an unrivalled level of service to contractors across the country. Magna Park enables a level of industry service combining unrivalled product choice available within an incredibly short timescale, with excellent training facilities and on-demand expertise. We’re extremely proud of Magna Park and the resulting boost increase in confidence and service satisfaction levels of customers across BSS Industrial branches and Hire-It centres nationwide.”
