Travis Perkins is relocating to a bigger site from its current Worksop address. The new branch is set to open its doors on July 11 to serve its trade customers in Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire.
The existing eight-strong team will transfer to the new site, and Travis Perkins has recruited an extra eight colleagues for full-time positions.
The new Worksop branch is two acres in size and as part of Travis Perkins’ new ambitions to reduce carbon emissions by 90%, the site will include electric forklift trucks and electric charging points.
The site also boasts a Hire Service that allows customers to hire tools, plant and equipment and more. In addition, its brand new Benchmarx kitchen display showroom offers a wide range of kitchen ranges and a hard landscaping display. As well as stocking bricks, the branch offers an extended range in the yard, including timber, blocks, drainage and lintels.
The branch offers a one hour Click & Collect service and next day delivery as well as a Branch Delivery Tracking Service, which gives customers delivery notifications in real-time.
Russell Kemp, branch manager, said: “We’re really excited about the move to a bigger site. We’re doing what matters for the trade in Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire and this branch will have everything they need, when and where they need it, and will deliver them value, convenience and consistency.
“The fact that eight new jobs have been created because of the branch relocation is a huge bonus too. It means we’ll be able to support all of our customers with choice, quality, convenience and brilliant service day-in, day-out and offer a fantastic delivery and collection service that doesn’t compromise them on time.”
