A leading UK roofing merchant has moved into its new £4m distribution hub following the site reaching practical completion.
Joint venture developer Richardson Barberry agreed on a deal with crucial construction firm SIG Roofing for a 10-year lease on a 31,617 sq ft warehouse unit in Bristol.
The unit, at More+, Central Park, Avonmouth, has become SIG Roofing’s regional distribution centre for the South West, bringing new investment and securing jobs in Bristol.
George King, Divisional Managing Director for the South at SIG Roofing, said: “The launch of a brand new hub in Bristol is an exciting step for SIG Roofing that will help make us, as a business, more efficient and stronger. This major investment programme signifies our commitment to providing a first-rate service to our customers, whilst also future-proofing our business to further cement our number one position in the market.”
SIG Roofing’s new move allows the company to significantly scale-up its service offering to roofing and construction professionals in the West Country and South Wales.
The firm believes that its new state-of-the-art, purpose-built facility will further improve customer service and satisfaction by being able to deliver an enhanced customer experience through improved stock availability and delivery capabilities.
Jonathan Robinson, Barberry development director, said: “More+ Central Park has been a fantastic success story and has proved attractive to many major companies. It is the ideal location for SIG Roofing’s new regional distribution centre, prominently located next to the M49 near junction one, and will provide a welcome investment and employment boost for the area. We are delighted to welcome the company to the site, where they join other high-quality occupiers.”
