Relocation Progress and Efficiency

The move to Bedford Commercial Park, just 17 miles from Comline Group’s current Luton base, involves relocating a multi-million-pound operation and tens of thousands of product SKUs. Despite the complexity, the transition is progressing smoothly. The new facility, though smaller in footprint at 70,000 square feet compared to the Luton site, boasts a modern, high-bay design and innovative warehousing solutions, significantly enhancing space efficiency.

Enhanced Capacity and Service Levels

The new site’s impressive 65,000 picking locations represent a substantial improvement over the current facility. This increased capacity will support Comline Group’s expansive inventory and ensure enhanced service levels for its distribution network, which covers over 50 countries globally.

Leadership Perspective

Comline Group’s Managing Director, Ishan Kamdar, expressed his satisfaction with the relocation progress: “We are encouraged to see the vision for our new Group headquarters taking shape. Every detail has been carefully considered to optimize our operations and to enhance the customer experience.”

“As we move closer to completion, and begin the move to our new home, each milestone increases the sense of anticipation. For me, one of the most notable moments thus far was seeing product enter Bedford Commercial Park for the first time, and I am equally eager to see the first customer orders roll out of the new site in the coming weeks.”

Bottom Line

Comline Group’s relocation to Bedford Commercial Park is not just a move but a strategic step towards increased efficiency and service excellence. With the project on track for completion this summer, the company is poised to enter a new era of growth and success.
