New Distribution Centre for Smiths News' Plymouth Customers
Smiths News today announced that it will be resiting its current three Plymouth operations and merging them into one distribution centre. The 30,205-ft² distribution centre is planned to open in Spring 2007.
The move to new premises is part of on-going investment by Smiths News to improve its network of buildings and warehouses, and the service the company provides to its retail customers.
Operations at Newton Abbot, Bodmin and Redruth are not affected by this re-site.
Simon Meyer, Smiths News' Operations Network Manager said: ""Everybody involved is working very hard to plan and implement the move to the new house, which we believe will be very positive for customers.
"This investment once again demonstrates our absolute, and continued commitment to improving our service to customers."
