Friday the 1st November marks the opening of DE Group’s newest 24,000sq ft depot in Runcorn.

The Runcorn depot, servicing key areas within the North West, is the second of many exciting ventures over the coming months, with Converse Pharma Group having secured a £60million refinancing package to help support ongoing growth plans.

The new depot features a full, comprehensive range of generics, parallel imports, ethicals, dressings, feeds, OTCs, vets and specials – all available for twice daily delivery. Our Runcorn site will work to service areas, including: Chester, Crewe, Llandudno, Liverpool, Warrington and Wigan; as well as plans for further service areas moving forward.

The opening of the new depot is another significant step forward for the Group and will provide the platform for further business expansion and continued excellent service throughout the region. The depot has been opened and will be run by General Manager, Simon Broad. Simon has been managing the project from the initial property search, right through to the first van leaving with the first customer order today.

Speaking on the opening of the new business, Simon commented “This is an exciting time for DE North West and for the group! We have seen exceptional growth across the business over the past few years and the opening of our Runcorn site will allow us to continue to provide our customers with the highest levels of customer service, delivered by local people, and with the flexibility to meet individual customer needs. The additional capacity at Runcorn will allow us to continue the process of improving our service to loyal, existing customers; we have a great team with lots of experience and an enthusiasm and commitment to customer service that will enable us to deliver the highest level of service for our customers.”
