Blanco travels a million miles for UK customers
Blanco, the German manufacturer of sinks, taps and extractor hoods, supplies product direct to market via a fleet of ten trucks. Most of the UK is covered twice a week by the fleet of vehicles which collectively travel around a million miles a year.
£1.5million of stock is housed in the company's warehouse in St Albans, Hertfordshire; the only UK location where Blanco can be sourced by the trade.
Products can be delivered within 48 hours between Monday to Friday and all Blanco products are boxed for maximum protection. The drivers, who are all employees of Blanco UK, have a combined service of over 120 years.
"The drivers' reliability is an important part of our operation," says Ron Blount, Managing Director of Blanco UK. "Arguably the drivers' presence and consistency plays a huge role in helping to generate the manufacturer / dealer relationship."
