A major warehouse expansion has been completed as communications supply specialist Nimans develops an even wider product range and continues to invest in the future.
Work began last spring to increase floor space by over a third, with the multi-million-pound scheme on the outskirts of Manchester now fully operational.
Chairman Julian Niman says the project represents a high profile symbol of how Nimans is gearing up for an even brighter future to capitalise on increased sales demand.
“Over the last 36 years we’ve come a long way. I started the business repairing CB radios from limited space at my father’s jewellery business and this latest expansion gives us room to grow even bigger and better,” Julian explains.
“The business continues to diversify and we sell all manner of communication and technology solutions from a simple cable clip through to a complete unified communications system, connectivity, end points and two-way radios – backed by the highest levels of service, support and logistics excellence.
“In the early days I was working in just a few square foot of work space. But now the warehouse has increased from 36,000ft2 to almost 50,000. This gives us much more order processing space particularly as pallet volumes and order tonnage are up 50% year-on-year. The expansion sends out a very strong message that the business is growing and we are continuing to invest in the future.”
He emphasises, “For over 35 years Nimans has been a leading player at the forefront of the communications and tech supply industry, evolving from our traditional telephony roots into a complete solutions specialist. It’s all about staying one step ahead of the game.
“Today the business covers all areas of converged communications – from network services and video conferencing systems to leasing, technical support, a reseller training academy, data infrastructure expertise and even our own unique product developments. Business is booming so much that our warehouse facility has expanded by a third.”
Nimans worked in partnership with construction specialists The Casey Group.
