Category: AAG News, Articles, Corporate, FPS News, Company News

We are pleased to announce that FPS successfully launched their new Regional Distribution Centre (RDC) in Launceston, Cornwall on Monday 10th December 2018.

The location will be essential to futureproofing the business and accommodating the increased volumes that they are seeing as the company grows. This is an exciting development for FPS that allows them to reach further across the UK and continue to offer consistently excellent service in the southern region.

This site brings the total number of FPS locations to 23 and is their 12th Super Branch with 23 employees and 16 vans. The main building has 10,700 sq. ft. ready to fill with products, plus an additional marquee to store exhausts.

Meet the Team

Some key members of the new Launceston team are familiar faces within FPS.
