Continuous support from E-Factor Properties allowed Smile 4 You to take on more stock
Since 2012, online retailer and fulfilment provider Smile 4 You has been distributing health and beauty products to customers worldwide. Established and managed by Director Paul Beatty, Smile 4 You has significantly increased its client base and developed its services, and so required premises that were flexible and could expand with the business as it grew.
What Smile 4 You needed Paul needed an office for the everyday running of his business. Due to the nature of Smile 4 You’s services, reliable network connectivity and excellent transportation links are essential. It wasn’t long before the business expanded and Paul needed to relocate to a larger premises. How E-Factor helped Initially, the E-Factor Property team were able to accommodate Smile 4 You with a managed workspace within the offices of Grimsby’s Enterprise Village, which boasts easy access to the motorway and ports – ideal for the distribution company. As business increased, Natalie and the team did their utmost to provide Paul with the facilities he needed, moving Smile 4 You to larger offices and then warehousing. When Paul required even more storage space for his increasing levels of stock, E-Factor were happy to assist with an expansion project on his premises – the construction of a mezzanine floor. The Result Smile 4 You is still a loyal tenant within the Enterprise Village and now occupies the largest warehouse on site with almost double the amount of storage space thanks to the mezzanine expansion. As well as distributing products to clients in the UK, Malaysia, Australia and the USA, Paul now offers an all-encompassing fulfilment service to small online sellers too, allowing them to concentrate on their business while Smile 4 You manages their fulfilment operations. Paul Beatty said: “Being here has allowed me to grow, from an office to a small unit to a large unit with an added mezzanine floor. The fact that it’s central is key for our courier services. E-Factor’s support and encouragement has always been second to none. They’ve allowed us to move units, build a new floor, and just grow. If there is ever an issue, it’s sorted straight away.”
