We Are Moving




Dear Customer


Over the coming months UC will be updating you on the progress of the move to our new purpose built distribution centre based in Barnsley, located off the Dearne Valley Parkway and junction 36 of the M1.


UC is starting to relocate all of its operations into the new facility and we will be regularly updating you on our progress. UC wanted to tell you of the coming plans in place to move our staff, stock and finally exit our current head office by the end of the year with MINIMAL disruption to all our customers.


Staff Move - You haven't noticed it yet, but our communications are now in place and we have full coverage over all sites with some departments already working from our new offices. This will continue with no changes to any of your current contacts, email or telephone numbers and most staff will be in the new facility by Monday 18th July. Our operational team will continue working between all our current sites and will migrate with the stock and where the day to day operations are needed.


Stock Move - In two stages, the first will see the move of our Provincial Park Site (S35 9ZX) which will commence 11th July with a planned completion late August or very early September. The second stage will be to move our current Head Office site in Attercliffe (S9 3WZ) between September and December in order to fully vacate our two locations and consolidate all operations into the one new site.


Plans are being made to reduce the time you may need to collect from all three sites at least until the Provincial Park Site is fully relocated. UC is working on moving stocks through the night and minimising operational stock moves through peak times keeping stock available at all times in order to keep you serviced throughout this transition.

It is early days, but equally important we tell you about this exciting time and how it is going to roll out. UC appreciates your patience and understanding whilst working to improve our efficiency and ultimately improving our service even further. If you have further questions, then please don't hesitate to contact us for more details.

We will keep you updated along the way!


We are looking forward to welcoming you at the new site in the near future.


Kind Regards


Mark Mellish


Managing Director
