New site unlocks expansion for gate specialist

Coverage received in: The Business Desk, Insider

A Leeds based specialist distributor of gate hardware, gate automation and access control equipment is expanding after moving into a new hub that triples its operational capacity. The move will create six new jobs over the next 12 months.

Rolling Center UK has more than doubled the size of its distribution centre by moving to a new 11,000 sq ft facility in Farnley.

The site now offers a large trade counter and new training room. The company is the exclusive sole importer and distributor for Rolling Center SpA, the market-leading Italian manufacturer of cantilever systems and gate hardware products. It is the largest supplier of gate equipment in Yorkshire and the North of England.

The new site has created training rooms and allowed the company to increase the amount of stock it holds to mitigate the threat of any supply disruption through the Brexit process.

Rolling-Center-growthThe firm has also introduced a new range of aluminium gates with a partnership with La Toulousaine, one of France’s leading manufacturers. Rolling Center also sells an extensive range of composite wood, gate locks, gate safety and ancillary products from leading brands.

Simon Smith, managing director of Rolling Center UK, commented: “This is a key period in the evolution of the business in the UK.  Our new premises have enabled us to continue to grow and invest in our team to provide industry-leading levels of service. We can also hold more stock as we expand our online consumer offer and provide an improved service to our trade customers.

“Hentons provide a consistently first class service delivering all our tax planning and finance needs from under one roof, which suits our style of business operation. As we continue to expand, it is important to have a trusted advisor by your side.”

Leeds-based Hentons has helped provide tax and professional business advice to Rolling Center UK’s management team.

Simon Gray, a partner at Hentons, said: “The Rolling Center business model is a great one and the team has ambitious plans for future growth, which we are very much looking forward to working with them on through to delivery.  I do not doubt that following years of success as the largest supplier of gate equipment in the North, continued success will follow as a result of this recent expansion.”
