NDI reorganises UK operations, Mr Tyre to distribute Nordexx brand
NDI has announced plans for the reorganisation of its UK operation including taking on a new warehousing site. According to a statement released by the company, the UK subsidiary of Nordisk Daek Import A.S., ‘NDI Tyre & Tube Supplies Ltd’ is embarking on major changes to the way it conducts its UK based operations.
Current operation will be “fundamentally changed” in order to concentrate the focus of the business onto the supply of specialised and niche market products, thus “allowing the business to build on the reputation of being a market leader in the more diverse sectors of the industry.” One such change is that at the end of February NDI will cease operating daily deliveries to passenger car tyre customers as they have consciously withdrawn from this market sector based on an agreement to supply the Nordexx branded products exclusively through Mr Tyre limited of Birmingham.
The new modus operandi sees the UK company align itself with the strategy of its parent company in Denmark with whom it will work in closer cooperation, as a supplier to the market of products that are both competitively priced and from a multi branded availability.
What this means for current business operations is that the warehouse stocks in Coseley West Midlands have been effectively reduced during the early part of 2011, allowing for a transformation of the supply routes to be bought into place to access stocks directly from Brorup in Denmark and other NDI warehouses facilities located throughout Northern Europe. Within the next few weeks an agreement regarding the location of a new UK stockholding will be confirmed, which is targeted to being located within the confines of a specialist independent logistical operation.
Deliveries will then be scheduled direct to customers based on where the stock is currently located within the group. NDI doesn’t expect customers to see any major changes to the way their business is conducted other than the fact that deliveries will be made via an independent courier.
