A SUTTON family business has doubled the size of its distribution centre to meet the growing demand for its products.
DJN, a firm founded 12 years ago by ex-miner Dave North, is a distributor of filters to the manufacturing industry in this country and overseas.
Dave, who works alongside wife Kay and son Richard, says DJN has grown due to increased business overseas and customers shopping around for improved prices and products.
Now because of the success the firm has experienced, it has moved into new premises on Hamilton Road.
Said Dave: “We have moved from just around the corner and our new building is twice the size of where we were.
“And there is room for further expansion. We are starting a new service for cleaning filters which means we need extra space.”
The move was facilitated by NG Chartered Surveyors, acting on behalf of landlord Walker & Sons Hauliers.
Richard Sutton, of NG said: “It is always great to see local businesses doing well – and DJN’s expansion is not only good news for Dave and his family, but also for the area.
“It is a convenient move for DJN – as they have moved just around the corner. The building was ideal for DJN’s needs and as a distributor of goods, it is important for the company to be close to the M1 and the A38.”
It is the third year DJN has operated as a limited company and Dave says he is delighted his firm is thriving.
Added Dave: “I used to work for British Coal and when I left, I looked around for something to do and hit upon this.
“Our business has flourished thanks to the internet, organic growth – and word of mouth about our products.”
