HiB will expand its headquarters in Tamworth to “keep up with the business’ rapid rate of growth”.
The bathroom company has just signed a new 15-year lease on 85,000 sq ft. of occupancy at the Birch Coppice site in Tamworth, where it currently resides.
The pre-let, which is due for completion in the second half of next year, will see HiB’s distribution centre almost double in size.
Managing director at HiB, Robert Ginsberg said: “It’s a great situation to be in but, the reality is, the business is growing at such a rapid rate that we are beginning to outgrow the Birch Coppice site which we originally moved into in 2008.
“Having only expanded the warehouse and offices last year to meet up with demand, we are already nearly up to capacity, so it seemed the natural progression to move to a bigger facility.
“This will enable us to stock more products, optimise delivery efficiencies and ensure we maintain customer service excellence.
Ginsberg concluded: “We are delighted to be going ahead with a new distribution centre that will give us the foundation to continue to grow the business in the future. We have seen our growth coming from the strengthening of relationships with our customers and as a result of innovative new mirrors and cabinets which we have launched recently and an increase in contract orders. We also believe that the rebrand has had an effect with mirrors and cabinets being given a higher priority in the bathroom design process as well as the brand now more closely reflecting the quality of the ranges we offer.
“At the same time we have also just extended our offices in London to cater for further growth – it really is an exciting time for us.”
