Managing director, Ebrahim Mukadam, said: “2022 was a record-breaking year for LWC. We’re fortunate enough to see a growth in turnover over the last year and identified a need to increase our storage capacity to meet customer demands and drive efficiencies through the business and for our customers. In fact, we have added 350,000 sq. ft distribution space over the last year alone.
“Opening this new depot in Doncaster marks another crucial step forward in our growth plans. Expanding our national footprint is imperative in the future of our business, so we can continue to support our partners where they need us the most. By actively securing more warehousing space and creating new, quality jobs in the process, we’re working hard to invest in the future.”
