Quartz and porcelain surfaces specialist Caesarstone has revealed it has expanded its operations with the opening of a new Irish warehouse and distribution centre. Located just outside Dublin, deliveries have now commenced from the new site.
Caesarstone opened its first UK HQ, distribution centre and showroom in London in 2017, and its second distribution centre and showroom in Manchester’s Trafford Park in 2018. Since then, Caesarstone’s business has continued to grow, with demand coming from all corners of the UK and Ireland. The company says that this growth has necessitated a third site near Dublin, from which the company will serve its extensive network of Irish partners.
“This is another exciting move for our business and a key element in the next stage of our growth,” explains Amir Reske, MD of Caesarstone UK and EMEA. “We already enjoy strong relationships with many of the biggest players in the Irish K&B market. Our new distribution centre will allow us to better support them with improved stock holding and delivery times, as well as bringing us new business as we increase our presence in this important market.”
The new 35,000sq ft site will hold circa 7,000 slabs, significantly increasing Caesarstone’s Ireland stock holding. As such, Caesarstone is increasing headcount to support the Irish expansion. James Dignam has already been appointed DC manager and he joins Caesarstone with almost 20 years of distribution management experience.
