April 2024: An ambitious restructure designed to prioritise the customer while supporting growth and expansion has been announced by Northamptonshire-based Nene Group.

As of April 2024 Warehouse Solutions, part of Nene Group, will focus solely on supplying its products and services to end-user customers.

Its trade customers will now be looked after by Qube Total Solutions (QTS), a company acquired by Nene Group in April 2021 which already specialises exclusively in supplying trade businesses, including the likes of wholesalers, distributors and manufacturers.

Thomas Pearson, CEO of the Nene Group, explained: “As a business, we believe in putting people first. This restructure is designed to ensure that we do not lose sight of this as we continue to grow. Celebrating 50 years of business this year further emphasises the importance of standing by our beliefs whilst continuing to strive for growth.”

The restructure means Nene Group’s newly formed holding (subsidiary) company NWS Group, under which Nene Warehouse Solutions, Nene Electrical, Econform and QTS (UK and Europe) sit, now has two separate and distinct lines of business and customer types: the end user, who will be serviced by Nene Warehouse Solutions, and trade businesses, who will be supported by QTS. Nene Electrical and Econform remain unchanged.

The customer has been prioritised at every stage of this restructure.

The expansion and diversification means NWS Group will now supply multiple services and products to a wide range of customers.

Thierry Schoen, Managing Director for the NWS Group, added: “This restructure is designed to simplify the customer journey and to support ambitious growth. All existing, as well as synergistic future acquisitions will sit under the NWS Group brand.”

Craig De-Lara, Managing Director of QTS, which is based in Pinxton, Nottingham, said:

“QTS’s mission remains the same – ‘to deliver exceptional supply chain solutions with passion, while fostering innovation and integrity’ – and we do this by providing all customers with the very best experience, through quality products, competitive solutions and rapid service delivery.

“QTS will continue to offer the full range of products and services that all trade customers have become accustomed to, providing a combination of engineering expertise, selection, flexibility and efficiencies, delivering real value to all trade customers in return. We have prepared and are ready for this exciting development.”
