Tableware and glassware supplier Utopia move as part of £15m investment

Tableware and glassware supplier Utopia has moved to a new 168,000 sq ft warehousing and office facility at Langham Park near Chesterfield.

The company has moved in order to keep pace with a growing market share and rapidly increasing sales and takes Utopia's total investment in expanding its business to more than £15m during the past six months.

Kathryn Oldershaw, marketing director of Utopia, explained: "This move allows us to increase capacity and hold more stock throughout our whole hospitality range. Our total number of distributors has grown rapidly during 2018 and we now have over 1,100 sales representatives promoting our products across the world. The new warehouse facility has been purpose built to accommodate our hospitality division."

The capacity of the new warehouse is more than three times greater than Utopia's existing warehouse and will allow the company to hold in excess of 30,000 pallets under one roof, preventing the double handling of goods and giving constant visibility of all stock.

With 15 dock levellers there will be no need to unload containers outside, bringing benefits in terms of speed, less damage to product, and a better and cleaner working environment.
