CIH Distrbution Yorkshire Warehouse

CIH invests in distribution with Yorkshire warehouse

Combined Independents (Holdings) Ltd (CIH has announced the opening of a new 125,000 sq ft warehouse in Tankersley, South Yorkshire to facilitate product range growth and provide better stock availability for its members.

The brand new, state of the art facility is owned by CIH and has been completely fitted out in readiness for the start of operations from Monday 18th October. It will replace the company’s smaller rented distribution facility for Northern members which was located in Preston, Lancashire. The investment signals a move to an even 50:50 distribution arrangement, with the North now served by the new Tankersley warehouse whilst members in the South continue to be supplied by the existing Andover facility at the CIH Head Office. This will make the stockholding and delivery process more efficient and reliable for CIH members, wherever they are in the country.

“This is a significant investment for CIH on behalf of its members,” comments Steve Scogings, Chairman, CIH. “During the next few months and in the years ahead, we are confident that it will be worth its weight in gold. It gives us the space to buy and hold more stock of our key product lines which will help members serve their customers better, especially as our market continues to wrestle with product supply issues, along with other sectors of industry.”

As a result of the new warehouse investment in Tankersley, CIH has also appointed a new delivery partner, DX, who will serve Northern members and take over from the current provider, Panther. This change will ensure that CIH can streamline delivery patterns and ensure the highest standards of cost-efficient service to its members going forwards.
