Nycomm announces major warehouse expansion as Nimans Home continues to grow
A major warehouse expansion has been announced as The Nycomm Group develops an even wider product range and continues to invest in the future.
Work has begun to increase floor space by over a third, with the multi-million-pound scheme on the outskirts of Manchester due to be completed by October.
Group Chairman Julian Niman says the project represents a high profile symbol of how Nycomm – which includes retail division Nimans Home – is gearing up for an even brighter future.
“Over the last 36 years we’ve come a long way. I started the business repairing CB radios from limited space at my father’s jewellery business and this latest expansion gives us room to grow even bigger and better,” Julian explained. “The business continues to diversify and we sell all manner of communication and technology solutions backed by the highest levels of service, support and logistics excellence.
“In the early days I was working in just a few square foot of work space. But now the warehouse is increasing from 36,000 sq ft to almost 50,000. This gives us much more order processing space particularly as our Nimans Home retail operation continues to accelerate at a rapid rate. Pallet volumes and order tonnage are up 50% year-on-year already. The expansion sends out a very strong message that the business is growing and we are continuing to invest in the future.”
He emphasised: “For over 35 years Nycomm has been a leading player at the forefront of the communications and tech supply industry, evolving from our traditional telephony roots into a complete solutions specialist. I first made a commitment to sign a long term lease on our initial Broadway building on the outskirts of Manchester, then I made an even bigger commitment to build our current multi-million-pound headquarters at Agecroft. It’s all about staying one step ahead of the game.”
Nycomm is working in partnership with construction specialists The Casey Group, on the warehouse expansion. Chris Casey, Casey’s Managing Director commented: “We are delighted to be working with Nycomm on this important development, supporting the company’s continued expansion which highlights Casey experience in providing high quality new build commercial developments.”
