OLPRO has moved into a new 10,000 sq ft office and warehouse space in Worcester following a record year for sales.
The outdoor brand has moved into its new headquarter space at Castle Farm, Holt Heath, Worcester. Following two years of rapid growth, OLPRO’s new premises will accommodate the growth in the number of staff the company employs and the need for additional warehouse space to hold more stock.
In just the space of 2 years, OLPRO has grown from a team of 8 to 20 and the company now has plans to employ 5 more people throughout the year. On top of this, OLPRO has invested in buying twice the amount of stock it normally purchases for the year ahead, as the outdoor and camping industry continues to see a boom in the number of customers and demand for products.
OLPRO’s new head office has the capacity for 50 members of staff in total and includes a purpose-built meeting space with modern conference facilities as well as benefitting from a picturesque countryside backdrop to show off OLPRO’s outdoor products. The Worcester-based brand will continue to use its existing KDO Business Park warehouse as warehouse space and half of the company’s warehouse staff will continue to operate from the building.
Daniel Walton, Founder of OLPRO, said: “This expansion is a major milestone in the journey of OLPRO and I can’t wait to see what more we can achieve in our new headquarters.
“I’m so pleased that our team can enjoy a larger and more modern space, but it’s also crucial for the growth of our business as we have seen a huge increase in demand for our products. The new warehouse space we’ve acquired has increased our capacity for stock by 50% and this is so important when last year saw our largest ever number of sales.”
“By the summer of this year, we will be employing more staff than ever before, so the new office space will allow us to continue to grow towards our lofty ambitions. We can’t wait to welcome everyone to our new home.”
