Wincanton has extended its contract with retailer Wickes just six months after landing the deal in a move which will see the logistics firm deliver kitchen and bathroom products across Devon and Cornwall.

The extension follows Wickes’ decision to transfer its in-house operation to Wincanton in December 2019.

The deal sees Wincanton take over home delivery of Wickes’ kitchens and bathrooms across most of the South West of England, Midlands and parts of Wales. Items for delivery will be loaded onto ‘final delivery vehicles’ in Northampton, which will then be moved to four parking locations operated by Wincanton.

Paul Durkin, Wincanton director of home and e-fulfilment said: “I’m immensely proud of our Wickes partnership which is built on aligned values and a shared passion for delighting Wickes customers."

Dudley Holliday, Wickes head of kitchen and bathroom distribution, said: “This is a really exciting development in our partnership with Wincanton.

“The additional contract has been awarded following an already successful working relationship, which constantly strives to provide the best possible service for our kitchen and bathroom customers.

“As we draw on our learnings, I am confident that this is another step forward in delivering a great fulfilment offering.”
