Gallery Direct's expansion continues
Furniture and homewares company Gallery Direct has unveiled a new distribution centre, showroom and head office in Sittingbourne, Kent.
The specifically built premises, which includes 70,000sqft of warehousing, is on a 5.1acre site allowing scope for future expansion.
The company required the additional warehousing space after May's purchase of Frank Hudson business, along with a major extension of its homewares offer with more than 250 soft furnishings products.
'Our product range has increased significantly this year so we needed larger premises to ensure we could hold sufficient stock to supply our customers quickly and efficiently,' says Andy Lambeth, Gallery Direct operations director. 'The new building is down the road from our current facility, but significantly larger and more modern, allowing us to become even more efficient.'
