Local MP and former Prime Minister Liz Truss officially opened the new Furncare National Distribution Centre on Friday 1 September.

Having been welcomed by Carl Southall, Furncare MD, Ms. Truss unveiled a commemorative plaque which was concealed behind not one, but two pairs of Furncare curtains as there was a split decision on the favoured fabric – Beatrice Indigo or Kibale Papaya – so both were used! She was then taken on a tour of the new facility along with a group of specially invited Furncare clients and care sector professionals. Following the tour, Ms. Truss was invited to take the driving seat in one of the Furncare delivery vehicles.

“It’s incredibly important that older people are able to live in comfortable surroundings with the right care and facilities appropriate to their needs. It’s great to see a thriving business in South West Norfolk playing its part in ensuring that this is the case.” – The Rt. Hon. Liz Truss MP

Furncare, a leading provider of specialist furniture solutions to the elderly and mental health care sector, consolidated their four existing warehouses and relocated them to a new 30,0002ft complex which includes warehousing, upholstery workshops and offices. The new facility is just minutes from the upgraded A11, linking the site to the UK motorway network and helping to ensure rapid delivery of specialist furniture stock items in as little as five working days.

Carl Southall, Furncare Managing Director, is delighted to see the new facility open. “To have Liz Truss, our local MP, support our investment by opening the centre for us is a huge boost for the whole Furncare team. We’re committed to delivering unbeatable quality, value and service for our clients, so it’s important to have the very best production and distribution facilities.”
