West-Midlands based depot to serve the region and the North of England

Bathroom manufacturer RAK Ceramics has opened a second UK depot in Dudley, West Midlands, to bring the product range closer to customers in that area and the North of England.

The 1,600sqm premises spans two storeys and provides warehouse space, office and showroom facilities. According to the company, it has been designed to accommodate for rising sales volumes and demand for next day delivery of its sanitaryware, sinks and tiles. 

The depot opening also coincides with the acquisition of 12 delivery vans, liveried with the company’s brand identity.

Joint managing director of RAK Ceramics Rob Jull commented: “Over the last two years, we’ve seen our business grow by around 15-20% per annum and there’s far greater demand from our growing customer base for a next day service.

“As we represent the largest ceramic producer in the world, we also have many more products than our hub in Petersfield can manage alone. Along with our existing head office, new premises in the Midlands, and a new delivery fleet, we can fulfil this demand – and provide an even higher level of support to both existing and new customers.”
