  1. EDC Update - First orders dispatched from our New Polish Warehouse

    It’s been a busy few weeks at our European Distribution Centre in Poland with staff, stock and IT equipment all arriving.

    The first team from our UK office and warehouse including Simon, Aaron, Chris B, Sam E and Hannah arrived to start setting up and training on-site with the new Polish staff.    Working through all aspects of the warehouse, they have already developed a great working relationship with the Polish team.

  3. The European distribution centre is taking shape

    Our European distribution centre in Wroclaw is continuing to move forward quickly and is still on schedule to open this Autumn. 

    The internal office building work is almost complete so now it's time to focus on the warehouse itself.  Before we can accept stock at the location, we need to fit out the warehouse with racking, and this week our new racking was delivered. 

    Piotr and his team were on hand to accept the delivery and are now working closely with the installation team to get the racking in place ready for the first delivery of stock which is due any day now.

  6. The next step in our European adventure – Polish Warehouse

    As many customers will know, Puckator is a company that began life in the UK, but we have always felt we belong to Europe. From employing our first French member of staff in 2005, to creating websites in almost every European language over the following decade, to opening our first European office in Valencia in 2011 and continuing that trend with office openings in Italy, Poland, and The Netherlands over the next 9 years, we really are an example of how the EU works for business. It is now over 5 years since the UK voted to leave the EU and Brexit has become a reality, it was not something as a company we wanted, but we have tried to deal with it in the best way we can, and after a shaky start, things are now getting back too normal. Delivery times are improving, and of course all our customers In the EU are now served by our Dutch company, Puckator BV, so there are no customs formalities or taxes to deal with.

    After careful consideration, we have decided it is time for the next
