From humble roots, the Peterborough-based firm has grown exponentially and currently operates out of its large central headquarters. EPD Insulation Group are opening a second distribution site in Frome, Bristol; expanding their delivery service into the Southwest, encompassing South of England and into Devon, South Wales and North of Cornwall. The Frome depot opened its doors to the trade from the 10th June 2024. Phone 01373 481 313 to get in touch with them.

Encompassing the triangular values of ‘Trust, Integrity and Service’, the Cambridgeshire company prides itself on unparalleled customer care, Industry-leading delivery service and exceptional staff wellbeing priorities.

The Frome depot will add up to 30 delivery vehicles when fully operational. In addition, this site will contribute to employment for the local community, with plans of employing up to 50 staff.

The winning combination of large stock holding, diverse fleet of vehicles, strong supplier relationships, customer-centric and knowledgeable sales staff, allows EPD Insulation Group to continue offering market-leading prices and services.

Tony Brown, Managing Director, comments: “We are leading independent distributors of insulation, screeding, drylining and associated roofing products, providing exceptional service since 2011. Our customer base includes Builders Merchants, Drywall Contractors, Screed Contractors, to the fit-out and interiors sector. We strive for excellence across our company operations, as demonstrated by our FORS Gold (Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme) accreditation. This ensures driver excellence, fleet expertise and sustainability best practice at all times.”

From door fills, plasterboard, studs, fixings, screed, acoustic membrane to of course, insulation, we are the industry’s chosen partner for all building supplies, premium B2B distributor to builders’ merchants, dry liners, screeders and the wider construction industry.

Tony Brown adds: “Our operations will still be centric with sales, accounts, transport, logistics and marketing based at our Head Office in Peterborough. This will ensure a smooth process for both depots and will remain to provide the excellent service we give our customers.”

Steve Boon

Steve Boon, Chairman and Founder, comments: “We are also committed to driving down our carbon footprint here at EPD and have invested in 14 charging points for company hybrid and electric vehicles at the head office. With having the new depot in Frome, not only we will be able to offer potential next day deliveries to the South but also reduce our mileage.”

 

March this year, EPD launched their ‘Digital Electronic Proof of Delivery’ (EPOD) system, to streamline the delivery process as to meet one of their Sustainability objectives by using a paperless system.

Steve continues: “Our product portfolio is already dedicated to retaining heat within buildings, thereby futureproofing with a higher EPC rating. Insulating homes and commercial buildings with EPD products has a multitude of benefits from: reducing energy bills and carbon footprint, creating a warmer home or building in winter and a cooler one in hot summers, absorbing sound, reducing moisture and condensation, and providing greater fire protection.”
