NEVILL LONG JOINS FORCES WITH ENCON IN WEST LONDON
 
Encon Insulation has linked up with Nevill Long at their newest branch.

Interior systems specialists Nevill Long have more than quadrupled the size of their largest stand-alone branch, and have added the specialist distributor Encon Insulation at the same location.


Nevill Long has moved, after more than 30 years, from its 11,000ft2 branch in Heston, West London, to a more modern 40,000ft2 industrial unit with additional 25,000ft2 yard on the famous Minimax corner in Feltham, less than three miles away.

As well as incorporating an Encon Insulation branch, offering a wider range of products and services into the new location, the move also required a doubling of the workforce, bringing new jobs to the north Feltham area.

The new branch comprises three industrial units and two large yards that will greatly improve delivery and collection trade, enhancing the group's position as “distributor of choice”. It is closer to Heathrow airport and major motorways, lying on the corner site of the A312/A315 of the former Minimax factory which produced Ariel bombs alongside its staple product, fire extinguishers, during the First World War.

Andy Nicholls, manager at Nevill Long Heston for 12 years, said:  “We had an extensive stock holding at Heston but this is increasing significantly at Feltham, so we will be servicing a whole new range of products to new and existing customers, from one, more convenient location. 

“The move also provides improved working conditions for our biggest asset, our people, and assists us in our mission to be the employer of choice.”

The Heston to Feltham move comes just six months after Nevill Long opened a new branch in conjunction with Encon at Maidstone, Kent, as part of the group's strategic expansion plans.
