Drive Medical Appoints MCI Logistics Ltd as its distribution centre in South Wales

Would you believe it’s now seven years since we moved from our operation in Brighouse to Elland, where has the time gone? The primary reason for this was our need for additional warehousing space; in recent times we’ve found ourselves in a very similar situation. It is for that reason we have formed a new distribution centre in South Wales, which is now fully up and running.

This new distribution centre provides us with 70,000 sq ft of additional high bay warehousing in addition to the 55,000 sq ft at our head office in Elland. It is based in Crosskeys and is about 5 miles from junction 28 of the M4 Motorway.

We’re pleased to say that the changes have not affected the jobs of the Elland based operations staff as we have in effect reallocated our current expenditure with outside storage suppliers to the new operation.

We are certain this new distribution centre will improve the efficiency of our logistical operation, ultimately improving our service offering.

Drive Medical Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Drive Medical, is pleased to announce the appointment of Beechfield Healthcare as the official Drive distributor for Ireland. Established over 20 years ago and based centrally in Portlaoise, Co Laois; Beechfield is one of Irelands leading trusted providers of innovative, powerfully designed and technology driven assisted living products.

According to the Managing Director of Drive, Richard McGleenan, “Beechfield Healthcare are a well-established supplier of independent living solutions to the government and private sectors, with a reputation for providing quality products with an excellent service. For these reasons and the fact that they compete in all major categories, they were the logical choice for exclusive distribution of the Drive range. We are proud to have the Drive brand associated with such a well-respected organisation and look forward to growing our sales in the Irish market with Trevor Flanagan and his team for many years to come.”

Trevor Flanagan, Beechfield Managing Director added “Being a part of Drive Medical provides us with an exciting opportunity to access an established base of retail customers, whom previously dealt directly with Drive medical. We are confident these customers will soon begin to realise the benefits of Drive having a distribution hub and customer service team based in Ireland.”
