Garden product manufacturer Whitefurze opens new warehouse near Coventry

Following expansion of its garden range, including the addition of new sizes of water butts and watering cans this year, UK manufacturer Whitefurze has opened a second state-of-the-art warehouse, near Coventry.

Expansion into the new facility has increased the company’s storage capacity by 36 per cent. The additional space will allow for continued business growth and product development, including new product launches planned for 2015.

Managing director Philip Lanni said: "We are now in an even better position to respond quickly to customer needs and capitalise on the growing demand for our products".

The company also wanted to limit the environmental impact of its second warehouse, so installed LED lights with PIR sensors which only activate lighting when motion is detected. This will  lower the impact of emissions produced by the facility.

Whitefurze's warehouse space now totals more than 16,000sqm.
