Wholesaler T. Quality is to open a new depot in Portsmouth at the end of March/beginning of April.
The new site, which will be based just off the M27 in Fareham, Portsmouth, will increase the company’s delivery capacity, enhance customer service levels and free up resources at other depots. The site will also operate a Trade Counter for call/click and collect customers.
The new opening is part of T.Quality’s ongoing investment in its delivery network and to cope with increasing demand.
It currently operates 10 branches, in Swindon, Bovey Tracey, Darlington, Avonmouth, Swansea, Peterborough, Birmingham, Leeds, Bridlington and Staplehurst.
Mike Crees, managing director of T.Quality, said: “We are delighted to be opening our newest depot in Portsmouth. This is a really exciting opportunity for T.Quality, the site will add further capacity to our operation but will also help to enhance customer service levels with increased delivery dates and the opportunity to reach new areas.
"Fish and chips is the heart beat of T.Quality and to be able to continue and expand our long tradition of serving the industry is our main aim.
"Investment in our depot network will continue to be a major focus this year as we continue to drive the business forward.”
T.Quality has been trading for over 100 years and supplies fish and chip shops with everything it requires, ranging from frozen fish and meat to packaging and cleaning products.
