Glasswells' commercial storage and warehousing facility in Bury St Edmunds has achieved ISO 9001:2015 certification for quality management systems.

The independent retailer's operation is a successful part of the family-run home furnishing business, offering third-party storage, warehousing and distribution to businesses across the UK. The division has seen significant growth over the last five years, with turnover in excess of £700,000 last year. The purpose-built secure storage facility is based off the A14 corridor to the Port-of-Felixstowe.

Glasswells has offered pallet and bulk storage since 2006, and document archiving even longer. “We constantly strive to improve the service we offer to our existing and potential business storage clients, and committing ourselves to a Quality Management System was a natural step in our development," explains Graeme Simkins, warehouse and distribution manager (pictured). "BS EN ISO 9001 is a standard that potential customers recognise and look for."

Glasswells will celebrate 75 years of trading in East Anglia in 2021.
