TPS expands network

Published:  20 March, 2018

TPS has expanded its network of centres with two new hubs opening in Bolton and Watford and two existing sites in Birmingham and Cardiff relocating to larger premises.

The new Bolton site is housed in a 5,400sqft building with the capacity to stock up to 6,000 lines of products, which will in turn service a 600 strong customer base within a 25 minute radius of the centre.

Further down south, the new Watford centre opened its doors in January, with the 5,000sqft building housing around 5,000 lines of stock – with capacity for up to 12,000 lines.   With the new and relocated hubs in Bolton, Watford, Birmingham and Cardiff, the number of centres in the TPS network is now at over 80 centres across the UK.
