Ivyline warehouse

Garden and homeware supplier Ivyline has relocated to a larger warehouse to support its ongoing growth plans.

The new warehouse – part of a 65,000sq ft warehouse development operated by Amethyst Group – is located just 25 minutes from Ivyline’s headquarters at Stoneleigh Park.

Ivyline says it will facilitate “rapid future expansion” as well as “quicker dispatch times” and introduction of “improved systems” to reduce mis-picks and stock shortages. This includes access to the Amethyst’s Wellesbourne site’s robot-operated shuttle racking, which it says is currently the largest in Europe.

Managing director Scott Thomas says: “Ivyline has years of experience supplying retail, which is why we were able to forecast the need for new warehousing. In recent years, not only has our retail network grown but our product portfolio has significantly expanded to incorporate exciting new categories, and as such our footprint is increasing. In order to accommodate this growth and to continue on our journey to be champions of multi-channel despatch, new facilities were a key priority. It’s an exciting prospect and we hope that our customers will join us to see what we’ve been up to ahead of peak season.”

Customers are being invited to attend the new facilities in conjunction with a trip to Ivyline’s showroom where its spring/summer 2023 and Christmas 2023 ranges are available to view and order.
