Southern Sheeting, a supplier of specialist building materials for 40 years, has invested in a new distribution depot and customer service centre in Loughborough.

The new facility, which will be branded as Southern Sheeting Midlands, is on the Wymeswold Business Quarter. It will stock a range of roofing, cladding and decking products.

Tony Hobbs, managing director of Southern Sheeting Midlands, said: “Southern Sheeting is enjoying a period of growth, making this the ideal time to enhance our geographical reach. We can now accept orders from customers anywhere in England, then supply what they need when they need it, without compromising our level of care and expertise.

“Loughborough, with its central location in the Midlands, vibrant business economy and strong transport links forms the cornerstone of our expansion plans.”

Southern Sheeting also has two sites in East Grinstead, West Sussex.

The company has big plans for growth. It has already created jobs in Loughborough and says it plans to recruit more.

Hobbs added: “We are a family business with more than 40 years of experience built on unrivalled stockholding, industry leading quote turnaround times, product knowledge and first name service. We can’t wait to integrate ourselves into the local community and start working with local tradespeople and homeowners.”
