To meet the demands of the largest plain tile market in the UK, Koramic - the clay roof tile brand owned by Wienerberger - has opened its newest and largest distribution centre in Sittingbourne, Kent.

To ensure customers benefit from a faster and more efficient service, the full range of Koramic clay roof tiles will be available at the new facility, including all standard fittings. A state-of-the-art product showroom and customer meeting area are also available.

"Our aim is to make Sittingbourne one of our most advanced distribution centres," says Martin Fewtrell, UK sales director for Koramic. "We have invested in a significant amount of new racking and storage facilities to ensure that stock can be quickly and easily identified, so customers receive their goods as efficiently as possible. These facilities also significantly reduce the risk of any tiles getting damaged as they are now very safely and securely stored.

"With the vast range of facilities and stock now available, we feel we can truly offer customers a one-stop-shop for all their clay roof tile needs and are currently looking at further ways in which we can continuously improve the services on offer."

Koramic tiles are now available from three specialist distribution centres across the UK. In addition to Sittingbourne, there are depots strategically located in Hull and Ipswich to meet the needs of customers across the country.
