Anglia announce distribution centre expansion

Anglia Components has opened an expanded £2 million distribution and operations centre in Wisbech. The investment let Anglia expand into an adjoining building, increasing floor area from 43,000 to 70,000ft². The facility expands overall inventory storage space by 40 per cent. Anglia is recruiting nearly 30 additional staff and has enhanced employee benefits across its business.


Anglia’s CEO, Steve Rawlins, said: “We’ve proved our resilience in one of the most difficult markets any of us have experienced. This is because we hold one of the highest inventory levels relative to the size of the business in the industry—and were bold enough to invest further to support our customers through the supply chain challenges. As a privately owned company, we can continue this strategy as we grow. We have scaled up our distribution centre facility to allow us to continue to increase our inventory levels as our business expands.”


Performing the opening, STMicroelectronics’ regional vice president of channel sales, Frank Wolinski, added: “The expanded facility in Wisbech means Anglia can continue to hold the levels of inventory needed to support customers once these projects go into production. I wish Anglia every success in their continued growth and look forward to playing a central part in their plans.”


Rawlins concluded: “As we pass Anglia’s 50th anniversary milestone, I am delighted to announce our plans for continued investment in our people, infrastructure and inventory. These investments enable us to maintain our renowned exceptional service, value and partnerships, and provide our business with a solid platform for future growth.”
