Mayflex, the distributor of Converged IP Solutions, announced that it will be expanding its Midlands Distribution Centre with the opening of a brand new, state-of-the-art warehouse, assembly and office facility located 0.5 miles from the Mayflex head office.
The new facility will provide 64,500sq ft of warehousing, including 4000sq ft additional office, training and demonstration space. The expansion coincides with a considerable investment being made into a new Warehouse Management System (WMS) that will provide a seamless solution to manage the stock held across the various Mayflex locations.
Andy Cooper, Chief Operations Officer, commented, “This multi-million-pound investment within our warehouse will ensure that we have the capability to scale to 2030 and beyond based on our growth projections for the business. We will eventually move the Environ build and training facility from the existing Environ House to this larger facility, which will also provide far greater storage capacity and further office space to house our ever-growing workforce.”
Andrew Percival, Managing Director, commented, “Mayflex continues to grow year upon year, particularly with the Excel brand that is sold internationally and with an expanding portfolio that has a new range of products being launched in January 2019 and new markets opening up in Australia and the USA to name but a few. We are also a major player in the distribution of IP security solutions and this growing market requires us to hold large stocks of products for next day free delivery.”
Percival concluded, “This investment in WMS and the expansion of the warehouse facilities demonstrates our continued commitment to growth and improvement of our services to meet our customer demands. We are passionate about delivering the best solution possible for our customers and in doing so creating a business model that allows us to grow in line with the market demands. It’s exciting times ahead!”
The new Mayflex warehouse facility will go live in April 2019.
