Manchester’s LSE Retail Group has completed a month-long relocation to its new site in Eccles, transporting more than 3,000 pallets of fragile stock from three different locations to the new unit on Lyntown Industrial Estate.
With lighting worth over £4 million to pack and transport, the move took three months of intricate planning to ensure all stock for the company’s sub-brands, Value Lights and Iconic Lights, arrived in top condition.
David Gutfreund, managing director of LSE, says:
“As a purely online retailer, we have huge quantities of stock that kept our old warehouses at near-full capacity all year round. The new premises provide enough space to house everything in one place, as well as enabling us to push ahead with expansion plans for the business.
“LSE has been growing at 100 per cent annually for the last four years and the new site gives us the opportunity to expand on this, transforming the business to a £30 million company in the next three years.”
Trading starts at the new office on Monday 4th August, with the 80,000 sq ft unit including a high bay, narrow aisle distribution centre that is ideal for the lighting retailer’s e-commerce operations.
