SIG is reshaping its supply chain IN ORDER to IMPROVE customer service and reduce its cost to serve. as part of this programme, the Group has recently opened two new Regional Distribution Centres in Dublin and Manchester.

The Dublin Regional Distribution Centre marks the first time products from all of SIG's businesses have been available on a single site. Although still early days, we are encouraged by its initial performance, with the use of third party transport providers significantly increasing our delivery capability and flexibility.

Given that Regional Distribution Centres represent a significant change in the way we work, we will now assess the performance of both the Manchester and Dublin sites over the next year before deciding on the future roll-out of this programme.
