Dedicated to improving manufacturing efficiency

Hoffmann Group UK increases size of its Birmingham warehouse as demand for space soars

Europe's leading system partner for quality tools, Hoffmann Group UK, extends its logistics area by opening a new warehouse in Aston, Birmingham.
 
Following a £150,000 investment, the Birmingham based warehouse, which originally opened its door in August of 2019, has increased Hoffmann Group UK’s overall capacity by 45%, making the overall space approximately 4000 sq ft. The additional space is an important milestone for Hoffmann Group UK, giving the company a greater ability to meet the growing demands of the UK market.
 
The additional space will enable Hoffmann Group UK to better manage its procurement, storage, distribution and logistics, which will subsequently enhance production workflow and increase productivity. Not only will the warehouse improve the management of Hoffmann Group UK’s services and offer customers more agility and dedicated stock where required, but it will also create additional job opportunities in the area.
 
The expansion is part of Hoffmann Group UK’s wider vision to double the size of the business by 2023, through more effectively delivering a broad range of services designed to help customers reduce costs and increase productivity. The group’s growth will also be supported by the development of a new international central warehouse in Nuremberg, Logistic City, that will ensure that the business can deliver at over 99%, even during periods of constantly changing market conditions.
 
As part of Hoffmann Group’s continued investment and expansion in the UK and internationally, the business is increasing technical expertise, introducing dedicated support for large national accounts and additional specialised resource to support services such as inventory management, calibration and repairs.
 
The new technical appointments come as part of Hoffmann Group UK’s business reorganisation, which was implemented in 2020 to provide the businesses’ growing customer base with a more bespoke, effective service through bolstering the number of experts available to advise and consult with clients.
 
Alex Puszka, Product Manager at Hoffmann Group, who will lead the management of the new warehouse and local product assortment, commented: “The new warehouse provides us with the opportunity to develop our local assortment, support local contracts with critical stock and ship hazardous products from the UK. Additionally, it means we will have a UK base for additional services such as kitting, regrind and calibration services and a set up area for our Tool24 vending solution systems.
 
Tim Paddison, Managing Director of Hoffmann Group, adds: “The new space will support Hoffmann Group UK in its mission to make our customers more successful by simplifying procurement and improving efficiency. In conjunction with our international central warehouse, Logistic City, the new space significantly enhances our ability to provide customers with the right product at the right time, whilst creating capacity for more jobs in this area.”
