TLA gears up for expansion through organic growth
01 September 2015
Following the launch its new 500 page product catalogue in June of this year, electrical distributor TLA has announced expansion plans.
TLA, whose headquarters are in Nottingham, has already opened a further three strategically located technical sales offices and distribution centres in Stafford, Northampton and Sheffield, and now proposes to continue expansion by relocating from three separate buildings in Nottingham to a single new 30,000 square foot building close to the present site.
Dean Curtis, TLA’s managing director comments: “Based on a marked increase in product demand which coincided with the catalogue launch, we have focused our attention on improving office space and logistics at our Nottingham site. We have recognised for some time that as a direct consequence of carrying an ever expanding range of product lines, we now require larger, more open facilities that put an emphasis on efficient product handling.
"This will specifically take the form of wide aisles, high bay pallet racking that allows the use of lift trucks and a new mezzanine storage system, larger shipping and receiving docks, and a location that still gives us good access to transportation facilities. The new building will give us all the above benefits by efficiently utilising a large frontage with four, full height roller doors to enable all of our delivery vehicles to load in just two shifts.
It is envisaged that the move will take place later this year when work on the new warehouse and office facilities are complete.
“Companies like ours who choose to grow organically must not measure their success on financial measures alone but must also take careful note of other equally important factors like customer satisfaction, product quality, logistics and supply chain reliability," Mr Curtis adds. "This move signals the first step in our intention to expand our distribution capability to exceed our customer’s demands.”
