Flooring firm lays down roots in North East with new depot

A flooring company has opened a new depot in the North East as part of its ongoing expansion.

Kellars has opened a new facility in Shildon, and now employs more 60 staff across its three sites.

The new site is 20,000 sq ft, and will be used to distribute products sold by Kellars to flooring retailers, trade customers and smaller flooring wholesalers.

Kellars commercial director, Dave Francis, commented: “We’re delighted to have opened a new depot in the North East as part of the continued expansion of Kellars.

“It has enabled us to increase our geographical coverage and further improve the service we provide to customers, including offering next day delivery on our products.

“The North East has always been an important part of our growth plans and we’re looking forward to making our own contribution to the local economy.

“We’ve come a long way in the last 18 months, providing new job opportunities and investing millions of pounds in new stock, fleet and depots.

“We’re planning to continue this growth in 2020 as we further cement our position as one of the UK’s leading flooring wholesalers.”
