Managing director Stephen Jones said: "Bringing our warehousing in-house has transformed our business. It means we have far greater quality control and stay closer to our products. Ultimately, we want to deliver fantastic products for our customers and having end-to-end visibility on everything from packaging through to labelling is key to this.
"We now have more flexibility over bigger manufacturers, bringing us a real competitive edge. It's made us a more efficient business as a result, and our business growth over the last two years is testimony to this."
The firm has worked closely with NatWest relationship director for Somerset, Adrian Cross, as it has expanded its operations and pursued its growth plans.
