In 2016, Handsfree Group successfully opened Installhub, their state-of-the-art 10,000 sq ft specialist vehicle conversion and installation centre in York. Only two years later, they have had to further expand, with the addition of the Group’s new Warehouse and Distribution Centre, perfectly located in Trafford Park near Media City.
Handsfree Group HQ, in Cobra Court – Trafford Park, is home to highly skilled project management, work scheduling, development teams, sales and operations.
An expert ‘on-site’ team of Handsfree Group engineers, who are all trained to FCS1362 and FITAS industry standards operate from InstallHub. InstallHub’s primary role is providing specialist conversion and installation services to Handsfree Group’s impressive portfolio of transport, logistics and emergency service clients.
It became necessary that in order to continue providing a top class service and remain committed to delivering projects nationwide within the transport, logistics and emergency services sectors, Handsfree Group needed to expand their warehouse and logistics operation. This expansion also needed to provide a dedicated production solution, where the groups customised vehicle solutions could be assembled for their customers.
The search has been a total success and subsequently the group have now moved into, and opened their new cutting edge 4000 sq ft warehousing and distribution centre in Kestral Road, Trafford Park, Manchester.
Matthew Johnson, Managing Director commented: “We are thrilled to be opening our new warehouse and distribution centre in Trafford Park. This is a big investment for Handsfree Group that builds on a decade and a half of our proud history. Our continued partnership with our software providers will encourage innovation and experimentation in our new UK logistics operations and help future-proof our business. We will be able to be even more responsive for our customers across all of our divisions, which include some of the most recognisable companies in the world.”
The opening of the new warehouse will further improve the exceptional level of service and value Handsfree Group pride themselves on, by streamlining logistics and increasing delivery efficiency with shorter lead times. The Group can also now hold more stock and easily receive larger consignments, which will better support their ever-expanding product ranges.
