HES Sales Limited, our exclusive distributor in the UK, has recently relocated to a new, wholly owned facility on the Royal Oak Industrial Estate in Daventry. The new facility spans across 14,000 square feet and houses a 10,000 square feet fully equipped workshop and warehouse, plus an additional 4,000 square feet office complex, with a Training School and Conference facility.
Having previously been located within the Hi-Force Limited head office, HES had simply outgrown its facilities requiring additional office space for the growing team, as well as significantly more workshop and warehouse space. The new facility has allowed HES to increase its workstations for the service and repair of hydraulic, pneumatic and electric tools, as well as incorporate separate training and calibration departments. An expansion of the HES hire fleet has also been made possible due to the increased warehouse space, as well as increased stock of supply items from across all of HES’s principal brands.
Following the relocation, H.E.S Managing Director, Andrew Moorhouse commented “We are delighted to have relocated to our own, much larger facility so that we can continue to expand and cope with our current, double digit growth levels. The new premises is entirely fit for purpose and the team are all very much enjoying the new surroundings.”
Kevin Brown, Group Managing Director of both H.E.S Sales and Hi-Force Operations worldwide also commented, “Hi-Force worldwide business has expanded significantly in recent years, and as someone that started his working life at H.E.S Sales almost 40 years ago, I am delighted that the Group Board has approved this investment, it is only right that we now occupy a much larger purpose modified facility, giving H.E.S Sales its own corporate identity.”
H.E.S Sales Limited continues to be one of the most successful global distributors for Hi-Force Limited and their new premises is very much a testament to the success of the business.
