GRANORTE has opened a new Telford showroom, office, and warehouse facility for its range of cork-based floors, walls, furniture, and design objects.
Owing to growth in sales, Granorte has moved to a new facility to continue to provide customers with a first-class service across its range of cork products for specification and retail. A new 10,000sq ft racked warehouse space, sample facility, offices, and showroom, will ensure the Portuguese manufacturer can deliver a UK-based service across its most popular collections.
Andrew Ellison, sales and development manager of UK operations, explains: ‘As specifiers and consumers consider the environmental impact of surfacing, furniture, and design objects more closely, the status of cork as a renewable, natural resource has seen Granorte’s activity grow. Our new Telford facility will ensure that we can provide our specification and retail customers with excellent service, including UK-based sampling and stock.
‘Our new showroom is also ideal for discovering how Granorte products can transform specifications and bring sales revenue through our range of retail displays. It is also a place to explore the many applications of cork, from our extensive range of walls and floors to award-winning furniture.’
With growth capacity, the new warehouse will allow Granorte to introduce more products directly available from UK stock, helping to reduce lead times. A larger sample room will also ensure that specifiers and retailers can also access a wider range of product samples and product literature, with greater ease and faster despatch across the UK. The showroom is open Monday to Friday, 8.30am – 4.00pm, by appointment only for specification and retail customers.
