The new branch in Dundee is GAP's ninth depot in Scotland.

The new premises will use what the company calls "an entirely new digital depot concept", which it has been trialled at other locations in Deeside and Doncaster.

Rather than displaying installed sample products throughout the depot, screens are used to showcase a wider range of the products sold by GAP. 

Simon Bird, GAPs MD, described why the latest depot opening could be one of the most influential: “We’ve always wanted to strengthen our presence in Scotland to improve the service we provide our customers. So, it made perfect sense to open in Dundee, which plugs the gap between our depots in Aberdeen and Dunfermline.  

“We are also pleased to be able to open another depot in our new format, which embraces digital communication, to allow us to show our customers the range of products we supply.

“This simply wouldn’t be possible with a more traditional showroom, due to the footprint this requires in the trade counter, so we’ve invested in digital to allow us to carry more stock in the warehouse and store more windows, doors and bi folds that our customers can collect.

“Now we feel we have the depot concept right at Dundee, we’ll move forward faster and open more depots throughout 2022.”
