A NEW HOME FOR FIRST LINE

First Line has moved to a new home in Banbury.

The parts supplier says that after more than 30 years spent operating in its hometown of Bicester, the move will help it grow business and expand its operations.

The new 130,000 square foot warehouse, located just off the M40, will house the entire First Line and Borg & Beck ranges, spread across 12 product lines and encompassing some 25,000 part numbers.

“Our new distribution centre is a major investment for the long-term and will give the us the room we need for the next 30 years of our development, which continues to follow our foundation principle, which is to put our customers first,” says First Line MD Dan Joyner.

Statistics can only say so much about a building, but considering First Line’s new home has 15,000 picking locations, seven docking bays, more than 5500 pallet locations and space for a fully functioning workshop, it’s safe to say that First Line’s investment is sizeable.
