Apta relocation complete: new home at AMES Companies headquarters in Pollington

Apta has officially moved home! Apta relocated to the AMES Companies headquarters in Pollington, East Yorkshire, in late 2023. As part of the move, AMES has invested over £3million into the 27,000sq ft warehouse facility – futureproofing Apta for many years to come. The relocation ensures more stock on the ground, enhanced delivery capability, and more flexibility for Apta customers than ever before.  

Benefits for retailers 

The relocation enables us to hold 67% more Apta products and 47% more pallets on-site – meaning more stock on the ground, ready to go to Apta customers.  

And orders can be in your store within five days – even during peak season – thanks to our strong logistics programme.  

Retailers will also benefit from linked sales solutions and multiple pallet deals, where they can pick and mix units, order half pallets and more. This is all in our promise to offer greater flexibility and be a partner of choice to our customers.  

Paul North, AMES Companies Managing Director, said: “The relocation of Apta from Ashford, Kent to Pollington, Yorkshire marks a pivotal moment for the future of Apta. The long-established brand, one that is at the very heart of the pot and planter category, is now supported by an infrastructure that allows for long-term sustainable growth. Moreover, the move means that Apta customers will benefit from access to more stock during this season and in time will be able order and receive combined deliveries of Pots and Landscaping products. This move is all about making life easier for our customers moving forward.”
