F&P, Primaflow and Connections has officially opened its new Southern regional distribution centre in Bedford, scaled to serve customers in the midlands and south of the UK, and make over 3,000 products available for next-day delivery.

F&P Managing Director, Jed Kenrick, says the Bedford warehouse has enabled a realignment of existing F & P stock and service centres, with the Orpington and Camberley TSP sites ensuring they have an extensive range of collect stock to support local stock emergencies.

The new site is a core part of F&P’s corporate strategy to deliver value to customers through shortened delivery timeframes and improved stock range and availability.

The opening of the new Bedford facility has seen the creation of around 20 new jobs, with 100 staff expected to work on site.

Mr Kenrick said: “The facility step changes our ability to service customers in the midlands and south of the UK: it means that we can not only make thousands more products available via next-day delivery.”
