eltheringtonEltherington, based on Dansom Lane South in Hull, has made a quarter million pound investment in its stockholding business as it looks to build on recent growth.

Part of the larger Eltherington Group the stockholding business supplies aluminium extrusions, sheet, plate and bars to fabricators and specialist manufacturers across the region.

Following a major revamp, which involved the introduction of new products, new pricing structure and an updated website, the company is confident that it has created a strong platform for further growth.

“Over the last few months we have invested a large amount in revamping our stockholding business and we are already beginning to see the results of this,” said Antony Eltherington, Group Managing Director. “The stockholding sector has been transformed in the last few years by low cost countries completely changing the pricing model. We’re confident that the investment we have made firmly puts us back at the forefront in terms of range and value.”

Service improvements resulting from the investment made by Eltherington include same-day and next-day delivery options*. This is a major benefit for Eltherington’s customers as it means they are able to hold less stock as part of a Just in Time procurement system, freeing up working capital in the process.

As well as selling to trade, the company operates a Sales Counter from Gate 6 on Dansom Lane South, which welcomes public and DIY’ers. The wide selection of products and knowledgeable staff make it ideal for DIY’ers looking to create anything from ornamental metalwork for the garden through to shelving and general storage units.

Antony added: “Because we use a large quantity of the materials that we offer through our stockholding business in our manufacturing plant, we are able to pass on the benefits of bulk buying to our stockholding customers.”

Eltherington Group is a major employer in Hull and has been trading from the Dansom Lane South for over 50 years.

Along with stockholding, Eltherington manufactures specialist products for the architectural, modular building and leisure home sectors. The company has supplied several high profile projects in the region including perforated aluminium cladding for The Arc in Hull and the metallic blue roof elements for Hull Kingston Rovers RLFC.

The Eltherington Stockholding Sales Counter is open 7am – 6pm Mon to Thu and 7am – 5pm on Fridays. Customer should go to: Gate 6, Dansom Lane South, Hull HU8 7LA.
