Once fully operational, orders placed before noon will be despatched the same day. 'We now have more space, faster order processing, better stock availability' added Mr Sahdev.
A dedicated Showroom will soon be opening within the building for Trade Customers to visit by appointment.

To complement this success, Avron has increased head count from 9 to 18 members of staff. The distribution centre itself employs six full time staff under Warehouse Manager, Jake Deacon. 'Sales have been the best on record which has been fuelled by increased DIY activity during the COVID crisis. 'As a business, we had to evaluate our offering during this difficult time. Apart from servicing our existing client base with DIY products, we also supported others by supplying PPE, which is further testament to our flexibility and sourcing capabilities', explained Sahdev.
