IDS expands UK coverage with brand new showroom and warehouse at Norwich
Surface materials distributor IDS has expanded its national network and opened the doors on its brand new Norwich showroom two weeks ago. With 224 sq m of floorspace, it is now one of the company's largest showrooms in the UK (it's located on Arms Park Road, Union Park, Norwich and the former site at Eversley Road has been closed).
IDS has had a showroom presence in the Norwich area for six years, servicing a varied customer base in the Norfolk area. Strong business growth, coupled with an expanding customer base and product portfolio, resulted in IDS looking for a larger site for the next stage in its development . The new site boasts a superb geographical location facilitating easy access for trade customers to visit, as well as fast road access for prompt deliveries in line with IDS's policy of 24-48 hours from stock.
The showroom showcases IDS's entire portfolio of flooring, worksurfaces, Showerwall panelling, solid surfacing, panel products and laminates. Dedicated product zones provide visitors with interesting sample displays and useful information, supported by knowledgeable and friendly customer service by branch manager Lee Neave and his team. There is also increased warehouse space, a total of 832 sq m, stocking 339 core products for immediate delivery.
Says Lee Neave: "We're very excited about the possibilities for growth that this showroom gives us. The larger showroom and warehouse space means we can really show our customers the benefits of dealing with a one-stop-shop for their decorative surfaces."
IDS believes it is the UK's largest surface materials distributor with 11 branches nationwide. Its offers an incredible portfolio of finest industry brands with ex-stock delivery in 24-48 hours.
