National Distribution Depot

In 1989 Big K invested in a freehold property and established its own packing plant in Norfolk on a 7.5 acre site. The advantage is that we can carry a significant stock holding in bulk as well as in finished goods. Due to the unpredictable English weather, this system of packing and stock holding ensures quality, continuity of supply and being able to react quickly to market needs, with deliveries usually being made within 72 hours of receiving an order.

In order to keep pace with the increased demands of the industry Big K has made substantial investment both at home and abroad. This includes establishing a joint venture with a company in South Africa to produce FSC products, that include disposable barbecues and instant light charcoal, charcoal and briquettes.

This is backed up with our own packing facilities for barbecue fuel lines in the UK.

Big K have recently completely rebuilt and modernised our production and warehousing facility in Stoke Ferry, Norfolk:

  • Warehousing space increased from 54,000 sq ft
    to 82,000 sq ft.
  • Stock holding capacity increased from 2,000 pallets to 8000 pallets.
  • Loading bays increased from 2 to 6.
  • Fully racked warehousing.
  • Less risk due to 3 separate warehouses compared to 1, with fully automated sprinkler system.

The combination of the above gives Big K a unique position in the market place!
