TPS Bolton branch

Volkswagen Group Genuine Parts supplier TPS has expanded its network with the addition of a new distribution hub in Bolton and Watford.

The move comes as part of the firm’s growth strategy to reach more customers within these respective regions.

The Bolton branch comprises of a 5,400 sq ft facility, housing eight staff, two vans with four drivers delivering within a 25 minute radius of the centre.

Matthew Sheldon, Bolton TPS Centre Manager, said: “The new Bolton centre has made a huge difference as we can now reach a lot more customers than before and that gives us a great opportunity to grow the business. “He added: “In previously servicing the region from our Oldham site we would experience difficulties getting across the M60 but the new location overcomes that obstacle and enables us to provide a much faster and on demand service.”

Meanwhile, the Watford premises contains a  5,000 sq ft warehouse, consisting of 5,000 product lines of stock and 18 employees headed by its TPS Centre Manager Sean Willis.

Speaking of the new site, Willis said: “We have only been open since January but we have already got off to a really strong start and are currently servicing around a 165 strong customer base.

“We have been able to create a good territory, right in the middle of the area we service with a lot of improvements including increased stock holding capacity and better speed of delivery. It’s been a positive start but the proof in the pudding will be in the eating as we look to grow our customer base and take the business forward.”
