High Wycombe-based Flex-R has opened a second UK depot in Huddersfield as part of its ambitious growth plans.
The company – which supplies EPDM materials for flat roofing to both merchants and directly to roofers – has opened the new depot on Old Fieldhouse Lane, as it is ideally positioned along the M62 corridor.
The 14,000 sq. ft. new centre will primarily be a training hub that roofing contractors based in the North of England can visit to undergo training on its range of specialist products.
Trading Director Duncan Winter said that the company has experienced strong growth over the last couple of years and that the new facility, along with the creation of new jobs, is the next step forward for the company.
“This building represents a platform to drive the growth of our business: the new facility will give us a strong foothold in the flat roofing market in the North of England because it will act as a focal point for our team and local roofing contractors,” he said.
“The new training hub is a vital part of our growth plans because we can offer training to roofing contractors across the North of England who would have previously struggled to attend training at our High Wycombe base.
“There is strong pent-up demand for our training courses for products such as RubberBond, Sure-Weld and LQD-R, which we can only supply once a roofing contractor has completed the two-stage training process, which involves classroom training and then on-site implementation.”
