Alfreton roof specialist to create jobs and double warehouse space

Permaroof, the Alfreton flat roof supplier, is set to create jobs and nearly double its warehousing space in the town.

The company has taken a further 20,000sqft on the Cotes Park Industrial Estate, taking it to a total of 45,000sq ft.

Managing director Adrian Buttress said: “To meet the demand the sales team have built over the past few years, it was inevitable we had to take on more warehousing. We have seen the sales of EPDM increase dramatically during 2018, and with the plans of new product lines being released in 2019, it just made perfect sense.

“The extra space will create a trade counter for our collected customers, larger cutting area for bespoke sheets of epdm. It will also allow them to stock larger quantities of their regular fast moving items, which is crucial to their success. Permaroof’s commitment to always having everything in stock for next day delivery is paramount.”

The new premises will also be the central hub for the Firestone Insulation board that Permaroof has just started to offer the market. Large stocks will be held here ready for direct to site deliveries.

Buttress added: “We are really excited with this expansion as we have several new products to offer the market in 2019.”

Permaroof intend to increase its warehouse team by taking on three new warehouse apprentices, and four more sales staff.
