Catering equipment and bespoke counter specialist Victor Manufacturing has expanded its site as it continues its growth strategy.
The Bradford-based firm has opened a new warehouse – designed to increase storage capacity, speed up customer order despatch times and boost new product development.
Victor Manufacturing’s sales director Andrew Gibson said: “The existing buildings had become full, limiting our capacity. The new warehouse has freed up space to create more efficient production operations and additional space for new product development.”
The manufacturer is now able to despatch almost 100 of its most popular products the same day the order is received.
Gibson added: “We are now geared up for same-day despatch any orders placed before 2pm, for the 90-plus most popular products we hold in stock.
“The expansion has also allowed for increased stock levels of popular products and extra capacity for new product development of equipment and custom counters suitable for the retail market sector.”
As well as the new 11,000ft2 three-tier warehouse, Victor is also investing in its workforce. The company has taken on an extra 15 employees over the last 2 years, across all areas of the business.
Gibson said: “We are pleased that the targeting of identified growth markets, coupled with Victor’s quality and service, has led to demand for our custom counter service. The increased investment and warehouse expansion forms part of our strategic plan for year-on-year growth.
“Victor Manufacturing has been designing and building catering equipment in Britain for over 70 years. Our reputation sets us apart in the marketplace and we plan to continue our success looking ahead.”
