The Manchester-based manufacturer and supplier of soft furnishings, Julian Charles, has signed a five-year contract with Expect Distribution. Expect Distribution is a family-owned, logistics and warehousing business based in Yorkshire.
Julian Charles has 72 stores across the UK and a rapidly growing e-commerce platform. Therefore, the business required a bespoke pick and pack operation. The partnership began this autumn and has created fifteen jobs at Expect’s site in Bradford. Expect will continue to grow their warehouse facilities to accommodate client growth and demand, including the opening of a new site within the next 18 months.
Managing Director of Julian Charles, Simon Peck, said that “With over 70 stores nationwide, we needed a trusted and reliable warehousing partner on board, particularly at this crucial time, to meet consumer demand. Expect Distribution perfectly fit the bill and we are already impressed by their services.”
Expect Distribution Managing Director, Neil Rushworth, added “I am delighted to share the news of this new business partnership with the team. It highlights our ongoing success at Expect Distribution and the strength of our warehouse division. As a result of this win, we are thrilled to be in a position to create jobs at Expect, particularly during such a difficult time.”
