DSales (UK) Ltd, the UK distributor for Develop, has moved from its previous HQ in Ripponden to a new home a few miles away in Copley, near Halifax, West Yorkshire. The new premises provide additional space to accommodate DSales’ continuing expansion, following a decade of unbroken growth.
The purpose-built DSales Business Hub provides 15,000 square feet of space. The company now has larger offices, a premier showroom, technical training, PDI centre for setting-up and customising machines prior to delivery and a marketing department offering media support and colour workshops/webinars to share knowledge, USPs and applications of new products. There is also a warehouse allowing DSales to hold its own stock of Develop consumables and machines, instead of using third party warehousing.
The need for larger premises has been driven by DSales’ ongoing sales success. The company now has 16 staff including sales account managers, technical specialists, administrators and marketing personnel. DSales also supports a network of over 130 dealerships across the UK and anticipates further expansion in its dealership base.
Managing Director Jonathan Whitworth said: “DSales is now the biggest distributor for Develop systems outside of the German home market with sales of over £13 million annually. Based on our continued success it was essential that we move to premises which can provide room for further growth. Our new Business Hub gives us better control over our machine deliveries, allowing us to be even more responsive to requests from our dealerships. We look forward to another decade of growth in our new home.”
