As well as a raft of new-to-range additions and the recent introduction of rotating electrics into its product portfolio, First Line is also expanding its physical presence, having outgrown its original premises in Northern Ireland, and is moving into a larger distribution centre in Belfast.
The 12,000sq.ft warehouse is centrally located and through a fleet of seven vehicles it provides deliveries twice-a-day across Northern Ireland and three times-a-day in the immediate vicinity. Fourteen members of staff now make up the team and together they already handle more than 20,000 part numbers from 4,500 binning locations.
Commenting on the development, managing director, Dan Joyner said: “Due to the growing demand for our products from within the province, the time was right for us to increase our investment in the operation to further support our customers on the ground. We have a keen and enthusiastic team and are confident that under the continuing direction of William Owens, it will be a great success for the company and for the team as individuals.”
