  • Impacto Holding Stock in the UK Warehouse - Jan 2010
    Impacto has been planning to hold stock in the U.K. to support our distributors in U.K. and Europe as well as their clients.
    As of January 2010, we are happy to report that orders for top selling products are shipping out of our warehouse facility in East Midlands, U.K. The location was chosen because of its central location and to ensure the quickest delivery times for our entire distribution network.
    Although we encourage distributors to hold their own stock for specific accounts that demand very quick turn around times, the UK Warehouse should help to reduce overheads significantly as well as speed up delivery. Orders can be placed as normal via fax or email through our Canadian office.
