Garden, home and giftware supplier Ivyline has relocated its warehousing, in a move that is designed to support the brand’s ongoing growth plans.
The new premises – part of a 65,000sq ft warehouse development operated by Amethyst Group – is located just 25 minutes from Ivyline’s Warwickshire headquarters at Stoneleigh Park in Kenilworth, and provides the perfect backdrop for the next chapter of Ivyline’s story.
Having witnessed significant growth over the past two years, this much larger warehouse space not only facilitates rapid future expansion, but also ensures peace of mind for retailers, with quicker despatch times and the introduction of improved systems to reduce mis-picks and stock shortages, including access to Amethyst Group’s Wellesbourne site’s robot-operated shuttle racking, which is billed as the largest in Europe.
To celebrate this new phase of growth, the Ivyline team is inviting customers to visit the new facilities in conjunction with a trip to Ivyline’s showroom, where S/S23 and Christmas ranges are available to view and order.
Ivyline managing director Scott Thomas said: “Ivyline has years of experience supplying retail, which is why we were able to forecast the need for new warehousing. In recent years, not only has our retail network grown, but our product portfolio has significantly expanded to incorporate exciting new categories, and as such our footprint is increasing.
“In order to accommodate this growth and to continue on our journey to be champions of multi-channel despatch, new facilities were a key priority. It’s an exciting prospect and we hope that our customers will join us to see what we’ve been up to ahead of peak season.”
