Cumbrian shower products manufacturer Kudos has opened a 60,000 sq ft warehouse in Sandbach, Cheshire, to house its finished goods stock in a more central location, for efficient UK delivery.
The move was part of a larger £650,000 investment, creating space at its Cumbrian factory for increased production, and logistics and marketing staff.
The warehouse also houses a 2,500 sq ft showroom and training facility where the latest product collections are on display including shower doors, walk in enclosures, shower trays and wetrooms.
Kudos is encouraging its retailers to use the space as an extension of their own showroom, to show end consumer products or book product training for new staff.
The showroom also enables Kudos retail support managers, who offer technical support, to carry out installation demonstrations too.
Sales and marketing director at Kudos Nick Graville said: “We’ve always had a showroom on site in our factory near Kendal for local retailers to use and this new showroom in Sandbach offers more retailers that support.
“We’d like our customers to treat these areas as an extension of their own showrooms, perhaps to show consumers a product they don’t have on display. They just have to let us know and we will facilitate the visit for them.”
