Local construction supplier builds on expansion
Preston-based family business Readyfix has experienced steady year on year growth and as a result have further invested in a second warehouse at their premises on Croft Street. The business, which employs 35 staff, added an extra 350 pallet spaces, equivalent to the size of a football pitch, allowing the 27-year-old firm to hold onto their ‘huge stocks’ promise as they continue to grow.
Started in 1992 by Richard Burwood, Readyfix supplies construction site materials, fixings and consumables to some of the country’s largest housebuilders and contractors as well as sub-contractors and independent tradespeople throughout the North of England. The company sets itself apart by offering impeccable customer service and next day/same day deliveries by their own drivers.
Managing Director Greig Burwood who runs the company with his father and four brothers added, “Our primary focus is to keep to our promises; prompt response, and on-site, on-time deliveries. We have an excellent team to enable us to do this and the warehouse extension is proof that we are willing to invest to make sure our customers continue to be fully supported and their needs met.”
The warehouse was under construction for six months with eight different local contractors working on the building.
Sales Director Mark Burwood commented, “This new warehouse extension will enable us to offer an even better service throughout the North of England. We’re proud to serve the construction sector with our commitment to responsiveness. Our large inventory now allows us to deliver orders of stocked items even quicker to meet customer demand.”
