The DCS Group has managed to increase its sales for 30 consecutive years, as the distributor celebrates three decades in business this month with turnover at £350m and its employee base now sitting at 550.

Denys Shortt OBE, founder and chairman explained how the past 30 years have proven for the need to continually invest for growth, in people, space and technology. “In doing so we have seen DCS grow to Over the past decade we have made big investments across both of our sites.

“The opportunity to purchase a site like this in terms of location, space, and capacity to expand would be almost impossible now. From the outset I have believed strongly in owning and managing our warehouse operations and we have built several new facilities on site which gives us over 300,000 sq. ft, with the opportunity to increase when we need, which we will.”

Continued growth will come from DCS Group’s position as the approved UK distributor for many FMCG brands. DCS Group chief executive , Michael Lorimer, explained: “In our sales and distribution division we have the privilege to service the majority of household, health, and beauty brands. Our channel, and category insight and expertise are what enables DCS to be the sustainable and efficient route to market.”
