Travis Perkins To Open New Branch In Derby

  • New Travis Perkins branch set to create 15 jobs in Derby
  • Will boast electric forklift trucks and large landscaping display

Travis Perkins, which is part of Travis Perkins plc and is the UK’s largest distributor of materials to the construction sector, is opening a new branch in Northedge Business Park in Derby on Monday 20th May.

The new branch is set to create 15 jobs and is 1.76 acres in size. As part of Travis Perkins' commitment to minimise carbon emissions by 90% this site will include electric forklift trucks, an innovation which will help to deliver on its ambition of decarbonizing its fleet and becoming a net-zero carbon producer.

The new Derby branch will also include a brand new hard landscaping display and extensive timber, bricks and blocks range. It will also feature a brand-new Travis Perkins Hire facility that allows customers to hire tools, plant and equipment.

Branch Manager, Adam Sheehan says about the new opening, “We’re really excited to be opening our doors to the tradespeople and builders of Derby, and our 15 strong team will do what matters for the trade. This branch will have everything they need, when and where they need it, and will deliver them value, convenience and consistency. We’re looking forward to welcoming and supporting all of our new customers with choice, quality, and brilliant service day-in, day-out and offer a fantastic delivery and collection service that doesn’t compromise them on time.”

Customers will also have greater choice when it comes to trading; be it in branch or online by using the industry leading Travis Perkins App. The App has been collaboratively developed with customers to help them not only work smarter, but also to save time by allowing them to check stock on the go from their local branch and order instantly with their personal trade prices.

Alternatively, customers can also use the fast and convenient one hour Click & Collect service, or next day delivery as well as a Branch Delivery Tracking Service, which gives customers the best possible delivery notifications in real-time without having to make a telephone call, saving customers time.

These innovative ways to trade are designed to save customers time; something which is reported as their biggest pain-point. Combined, these provide a one-stop personalised experience, whether on the move, on site, in-branch - whenever and wherever they need it.

Travis Perkins Derby is located at: Travis Perkins Northedge Business Park, Alfreton Road, Derby, DE21 4BN.
