Specialist distributor of coach and bus parts Imperial Engineering saw in the new year with the opening of its new facility in Harlow, Essex, having relocated from a previous site in Cheshunt where it had been based for over half a century. Affording the firm more than 15,000 square feet of warehousing and office space on an expanding industrial area, the new site represents a significant investment in the company’s future, with the building having been completely refurbished to the firm’s own specification over the past six months.
Commenting on the company’s relocation, John Dwight, Imperial Engineering’s Sales Director, said: “Having built up the business from our original site in Cheshunt, which is being redeveloped for housing, Imperial secured a building in Harlow last year, which gives us increased stock-holding capacity and excellent communication links. Working in partnership with our contractors, we’ve fitted out the building to suit the existing and future needs of our business and our staff have also relocated. The whole team is excited to start a fresh chapter in Imperial’s history.
“To ensure a smooth transition, Imperial notified all its customers and suppliers prior to the move, which took place between Christmas and New Year, in order to minimise any business disruption. Thanks to everyone’s support, we have already cleared a backlog of orders and the business is having a very busy January.”
