Collierville, Tenn.-based resin supplier AOC announced the opening of AOC House, the new and expanded office and warehouse center for AOC (U.K.) Ltd. and AOC Europe operations.

The center improves AOC’s efficiencies by relocating and consolidating functions and services that serve the U.K. and Europe within a single, focused campus, the company said.

Located at Brantham in Essex, U.K., the center expands the distributor’s warehousing and manufacturing space to 55,000 square feet to better accommodate current needs and allow for projected growth.

“As our products continue to expand into new markets and our company grows, we need to have the right facility in the right location,” AOC (U.K.) Ltd. managing director Peter Cheshire said in a statement. “Brantham was the best choice for our new facility because of a history where we can serve customers and provide convenience to valued employees.”
