The 18,000 sq ft warehouse and modern office space at Dinnington will provide the company with a state-of-the-art site, from which it can distribute its entire product range to its customer base in the UK and Ireland.

The new facility enables API to hold double the amount of stock of the previous site, as well as the latest in spooling, cutting and slitting machinery. The site is only four miles away from the previous location, so benefits from the same excellent transport links due to its proximity to the M1, whilst having little or no impact on staff, ensuring the team benefits too.
