Pipe Center, a Wolseley UK company and United Kingdom supplier of heating, pipe and related products to the commercial and industrial building services industries, has opened a new distribution center in Measham, Derbyshire.
Builders' Merchants News and H&V News report that the 142,000 square foot facility is the most technologically advanced DC in the company's supply chain, allowing Pipe Center to deliver across its network on a next-day basis, and that it created 54 new jobs.
Pipe and Climate Center managing director Andy Wighton said: "We have created one of the most dynamic and advanced distribution centres in the industry that will help us achieve customer service excellence," Pipe Center Pipe and Climate managing director Andy Wighton said. "Measham DC is ideally placed geographically and fits with our supply chain strategy to be as efficient as possible."
The new DC is said to be an investment into Wolseley UK's supply chain and the future expansion of the Pipe and Climate business.
Wolseley UK is No. 1 on Industrial Distribution's 2014 Big 50 List.
