SUSPENSION WAREHOUSE SPRINGS UP


Suspension brand Lesjöfors Springs has relocated to a  new purpose-built UK distribution centre at Lindley Moor Road, Huddersfield.

The new facility measures 65,000 sq ft, offering almost 50% more storage capacity than its previous premises, with improved transport links to the motorway network and easy access for heavy goods vehicles as it is right next to the M62.

Robert Glynn, Managing Director of Lesjöfors Springs UK, said: “We continue on a ‘journey of improvement’ and this new facility means customers will experience even greater levels of service”.

“The increased space, improved materials handling and warehouse management solutions, position us well to maintain our 99% service rate and to meet whatever demands the market throws at us, whilst allowing us to remain competitive through efficiencies.”

The new unit has potential to extend the warehouse by a further 15,000 sq ft  should the need arise.

As part of a global automotive powerhouse, TRW Aftermarket directly translates OE knowledge, technology and innovation into its Aftermarket offer.

To vote, IAAF members should access www.iaaf.co.uk click on the link and follow the step-by-step guide to choose their preferred supplier. All votes must be registered by 18th November.

TRW’s UK marketing manager, Kevin Price, commented: “To be nominated for this award is an honour. There are many outstanding brand names operating within the UK, so the standard of opposition is incredibly high.

“As a global brand and all that offers, including: increasing manufacturing footprint, worldwide industry expertise and technical innovation, we are very proud to have retained a local perspective.”

Kevin concluded: “This nomination reflects the hard work and relationship building which goes on behind the scenes on a day to day basis, and we are thrilled to be nominated by an industry body that shares our ethos for a safe, ever developing, open and transparent UK aftermarket.”
