15th February 2016, 10:23amWe are delighted to announce the opening of our newly refurbished £2m distribution hub on Belmont Industrial Estate in Durham.
We acquired the new premises last year as part of our continued expansion and have invested £500,000 in a major refurbishment of the facility, which has been project managed by Newcastle-based Silverstone Building Consultancy.
The new hub will eventually replace our existing distribution site in Spennymoor and will create up to 20 new jobs.
Neil Tweddle, managing director at Godfrey Syrett said: “The premises and site have been extensively modified to create a first class furniture distribution centre that will allow us to tailor our deliveries and installations seamlessly to meet our customer’s requirements.”
He continued: “The re-developed facility, which is very close to the A1M, is double the size of our former distribution site in Spennymoor, enabling us to improve service levels and increase operational efficiencies.”
Last year we announced an £850,000 investment in a brand new fleet of eight purpose-built delivery vehicles, which will now operate out of the new site at Belmont.
Mark Coulter, associate director at Silverstone said: “We worked closely with Godfrey Syrett to develop creative solutions tailored to their business needs. An essential part of the redevelopment project was to create recessed loading docks to accommodate their delivery fleet and demolish internal walls to maximise the floor space to cater for their distribution operations.”
