A family-run laptop bag, backpack and luggage distributor and reseller has praised the support of a delivery and storage firm after enjoying strong growth.
Tigerbags says it is primed to increase turnover by 35 per cent thanks to the help of Cramlington’s Moody Logistics and Storage.
The business, part of The Defining Way company, moved to the region from Oxfordshire four years ago to take advantage of Moody’s storage, office and warehousing facilities, and says the switch has paid healthy dividends.
Distributing goods across a number of international brands, Tigerbags uses Moody’s logistics hub to process pallets of goods for delivery in the UK and Europe.
Owner and co-founder Tim Woods said: “Our eldest son worked for the business and was living in Newcastle, so we began looking for suitable premises in this area and quickly found Moody Logistics and Storage.
“Since establishing the business in Cramlington, the company has gone from strength-to-strength.
“We are now a multi-million-pound business and last year we had our best year ever – this financial year we are on course to grow again by more than 35 per cent.
“It provides the business with everything it needs, sufficient warehousing space, an office and efficient load and unload facilities. Moody’s is also a family-run firm and, as such, understands our specific needs.
Caroline Moody, business development director, added: “We are delighted Tigerbags has been able to successfully grow due to the combination of office and storage space, supported by proper warehousing facilities.
“Our units are ideal for people looking to get started in business and have stock which needs to be distributed, but also for those existing business looking to expand without being impeded by high rents and rates.”
