Perform Panel opens third distribution centre in England
Located in Bridgwater, the 4,650sq ft centre is our third location to open in England in the last 18 months
Located in Bridgwater, the 4,650sq ft centre is our third location to open in England in the last 18 months. The site will supply to building and construction industries across the south of England and Wales.
The new location further advances our five-year strategy, which has included a £1 million investment to increase both capacity and quality. Across the UK, new machinery and upgraded sites have substantially increased production capacity for Perform Panel, with the Bridgwater site stocking over 5,500 panels.
The new distribution centre employs five full-time staff, with further recruitment anticipated, demonstrating commitment to the area and creating local employment opportunities via the distribution centre and van fleet. Richard Murray (pictured left) has been appointed as Depot Manager to lead the new site, and Dilwyn Wheeler (right) has joined the team as Area Business Development Manager.

Steve Galbraith, Managing Director at Perform Panel, comments: “After the success of our Solihull and Barnsley depots, we are extremely excited to continue expanding our network with our third depot in Bridgwater. The site is perfectly located to best service south west England and south Wales.
“We look forward to further enhancing our service levels to our national accounts and working with new customers in the area. Our strategy is to deliver a quality product at a quality price, backed up by an excellent delivery service, and this site is a huge step forward towards our end game of being a truly national distributor of our Perform Panel brand. We have an excellent team in place who look forward to exceeding our customers’ expectations in the years ahead.”
