London-based NGW Group, parent company of Simply Catering Equipment, has chosen a premises in Redditch as its new national distribution hub.
The group was formed in February last year, and as well as the dealership, comprises sister companies Simply Eco Packaging and Fusion Hygiene.
Local commercial property agents John Truslove helped the firm find the new premises, a 1,121ft2 warehouse on the North Moons Moat industrial estate in Redditch.
NGW Group operations manager Trevor Histon said the rapid success and growth of the firm means they will soon be asking the team at John Truslove to find them even bigger premises.
“Simply Eco Packaging formed in March 2020 and was initially being run from homes in Redditch and London. Due to increase in sales a warehouse property had to found as soon as possible.
“Ben Truslove at John Truslove was brilliant. We managed to find a warehouse on North Moons Moat and within 3 weeks we had the keys to the warehouse.
“Sales had grown that much in a short space of time, we had carriers collecting full loads of traffic from our homes, so to have Ben and his team get us the keys so quickly was amazing.”
Histon explained: “We have three brands under NGW Group – Simply Catering Equipment, Simply Eco Packaging and now Fusion Hygiene, which was launched in June.
“Our focus is Simply Eco Packaging, which has grown massively since the Covid-19 outbreak and the subsequent lockdown. We distribute eco-friendly packaging to cafes, restaurants, takeaways, and food outlets nationwide.
“The day-to-day business operation is run by me out of the warehouse in Redditch, while purchasing and sales are run by our team in London. We started with two employees but, due to growth, two more employees will be needed before the end of the year.”
He added: “Due to the growth of Simply Eco Packaging and our new cleaning business, Fusion Hygiene, the warehouse on North Moons Moat will soon be outgrown and Ben and his team will be given the opportunity to find our new premises.”
Ben Truslove, joint MD at John Truslove, said: “We pride ourselves on our unrivalled knowledge of the local commercial property scene, so when Trevor Histon and Simply Eco Packaging got in touch we had a number of potential sites on our books.
“Unit 19 on the North Moons Moat estate provided warehouse and office space as well as vehicle parking and was tailor-made for their needs. This is a rapidly growing business and we look forward to helping them with the next stage in their expansion.”
