Optimas opens two new distribution facilities

Optimas OE Solutions, a global manufacturer and distributor of precision-made fasteners and supply chain solutions, has announced the opening of two new UK distribution facilities.

The two facilities, one in the prime location of the Birmingham Trade Park and the other in the heart of the sprawling industrial landscape of the Aycliffe Business Park (Newton Aycliffe), have been strategically chosen for their ease of access to main transport routes and to allow the rapid deployment of parts and service provision to key regional customers.

With the opening of Birmingham facility, Optimas can provide core fastener and component distribution services to existing customers by providing a cross-dock function and operating as a base in the Midlands for the company’s support vehicles and envoys.

Additionally, with Optimas’ imminent planned launch of a substantial range of industrial supplies, this site will allow the quick distribution of essential workwear, safety equipment and tools into those customers and will provide new opportunities to partner with manufacturers throughout the Midlands.

Further north, the Newton Aycliffe facility has opened following a relocation from Gateshead, representing a significant evolution from a conventional warehouse to a highly-efficient forward operating deck, one that will now focus on providing customers with a superior and dynamic distribution service.

Resupplied daily from the company’s northern hub, fasteners are distributed on to a fleet of dedicated vehicles and delivered by a team of specialist onsite envoys tasked with maintaining direct line feeds at some of Optimas’s largest customers.

Keen to provide high standards across the board, it’s full steam ahead at the Aycliffe site which also boasts KLT cleaning capabilities for boxes and trays.
