Second warehouse for Lesters

UK-based large packaging specialists, Lesters, has invested £100,000 into the opening of a second warehouse to help it cope with a 120% increase in orders.

The company, which has recently recruited 15 new staff, has fitted out the 25,000 sq ft facility near its headquarters in Burntwood with flexible racking options meaning it has enough space to store over 2,000 pallets. This latest move, coupled with its existing facilities, means the company can now offer 47,000 sq ft of storage space, 20,000 sq ft of floor storage space and 3,000 pallet spaces.

A new Warehouse Manager has already been appointed to oversee the additional operation.

“We have a three-year expansion plan that will see the business move to £25m in annual sales and getting more of our stock under our control is an important step in making that happen,” explained Billy Hutchinson, Managing Director. “It was previously outsourced and that didn’t give us the flexibility we needed, especially with more customers coming on by the day.”
