Taylor: expansion plans

Online UK retailer of mobile accessories, Mobile Fun has extended its warehouse and distribution centre to meet increasing sales.

The 25% additional space within its UK warehouse comes as a result of Mobile Fun’s international expansion over the past 18 months and the launch of four new websites – Spain, The Netherlands, Italy and the US – adding to its existing portfolio of sites in the UK, France and Germany.

Operations director, Ruel Taylor, said: “International orders currently make up 30% of our total revenue and this is growing every month, especially following the successful launch of our new websites across Europe and the US.

“As a result of continually increasing demand from customers worldwide, our existing warehouse simply wasn’t large enough to handle all of the orders we are now processing. Our reputation for offering the largest range of mobile accessories is extending beyond the UK and Europe, so we’ve created additional space to help us fulfil growing international orders quickly.”

The extended warehouse will also ensure Mobile Fun is prepared for the upcoming Christmas period. Last December, Mobile Fun achieved its first million month with sales of over £1.1m and the company anticipates order numbers will increase significantly this year, from October 2012 onwards, thanks in part to a strong roadmap of devices launching and selling in Q4.

These include the highly anticipated iPhone 5, Galaxy S3 and Nexus products.
