Multi-million pound investment at AMES comes to fruition

Our £3 million investment plan is coming to fruition as stock moves into a fully refurbished warehouse space on our Pollington site.

As part of a wide ranging investment and growth plan, we’ve fully repurposed the 60,000 sq ft hangar now dedicated to housing stock.

Multiple brands are now under one roof including Kelkay, Woodshaw and the new-for-2024 AMES Tools.

With our new operations head David Wright leading the way, optimum stock holding is in focus.

Our sales and operations teams are completing 2024 forecasts to ensure AMES Companies retailers have exactly what they need when they need it most.

This newest warehouse sits alongside existing facilities and will operate a continual fill process, creating multiple benefits for retail customers including near 100% stock availability throughout the year ahead.

Optimum stock holding is just the beginning. This investment also gives AMES Companies retailers the opportunity to consolidate deliveries and make cross-category orders.

Retailers can also enjoy access to UK market firsts thanks to our associated global manufacturing expertise, exemplified by the brand new AMES Tools range.

Paul North, Managing Director at the AMES Companies, said: “We’re on the brink of big things and the incoming stock is just the beginning.

“From our new warehouse and exciting diversification into new product categories, to new manufacturing and logistic partnerships, we’re continually investing into the vision we have for the AMES Companies and its UK-brand portfolio.

“There is no question that season 24 is looking good, and we cannot wait to have our customers join us on this journey.”
