It follows yearly growth of the company by 30-40%.

The 68,000sqft site adds to the company’s existing offices and warehouse space in Keighley, and will be used for daily pick and pack operations as well as manage its fleet of 20 vehicles.

Family-run Harrison Bathrooms now occupies 110,000sqft of warehousing space and delivers nationally.

With roots of more than 100 years in the bathroom industry, the company has an 80-strong workforce and supplies more than 1,000 merchants and retailers with bespoke product, as well as Scudo and Harrogate Collection brands.

Managing director of Harrison Bathrooms James Harrison commented on the acquisition: “As our customer base has grown to 400 deliveries a day, we needed a more centrally-based site to operate our fleet from.

“The newly-installed, narrow aisle racking system at the Leeds base has created an additional 8,500 pallet spaces, which will allow us to launch hundreds of new items in 2020 and push towards our turnover target of £40million by 2022.”

Harrison Bathrooms was ranked in The Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100, which recognises companies with the fastest-growing sales.
