A supplier of parts and accessories to commercial vehicle fleets is opening its first Peterborough branch in the city’s Newark Road industrial area, confirms Barker Storey Matthews who acted as sole agent for the landlord in the letting of Unit 3 Viking Trade Park to Digraph Transport Supplies Ltd.

Digraph has taken a new, ten-year lease on the 558.4 sq m (6,011 sq ft) end of terrace warehouse with offices unit at Viking Park from where it began trading this month (August).

The Viking Trade Park unit is the fourth of 16 new Digraph branches in its programme of planned business expansion, following substantial new investment announced towards the end of last year (2017).  With an initial headcount of ten in Peterborough, Digraph expects to further recruit in line with the development of the branch’s business.

In seeking premises in Peterborough, Digraph confirms that size and location were key requirements for ease of access for its customers, as well as minimising the time to deliver products and parts to its customers’ workshops.

Sukhbir Kapoor, Chief Executive Officer of Digraph, commented, “We’re already acting quickly on our intent to expand both Dgraph’s network and customer reach, plus we have more business announcements to come.

“We are building our new branches around the best team players in key locations throughout the UK and working hard to develop new partnerships with leading original equipment manufacturers.”

Richard Jones, Director, Barker Storey Matthews, added, “In locating its Peterborough branch in Newark Road – one of the city’s most established commercial areas – Digraph becomes part of the healthy mix of trade counter, car showroom, retail warehouse and industrial warehouse occupiers close to the city centre but well-located for onward road access to the immediate region and the national road network.  

“We wish them well in trading for the first time in the city.”
