Torque, the renowned ‘end to end’ logistics service provider, is delighted to announce that a new state of the art processing centre at its Wortley warehouse in Leeds is open and ready for business.

With an investment of over £1million, the new facility is one of the largest in the UK spanning approximately 50,000 sq ft. A market leader in pre-retail services, Torque’s new centre covers all aspects of processing including a state of the art conveyer for unloading and loading to reduce handling, boxed to hang, quality control, steam tunnelling, extensive pressing facilities and bagging. In addition to these services, Torque has the facility to provide ozone treatment capable of destroying mould spores and other unwanted contaminants – so Torque has everything to seamlessly act as an extension of its clients’ finishing and preparation for store process.

Neil Hewitt, Processing Manager, Torque comments: “The very nature of fast moving fashion means that retailers are under constant pressure to meet the evolving and ever increasing demands of consumers, especially in the current and very challenging economic climate. The carefully tailored processes we apply give a renewed source of vitality to a well travelled and often cramped product, bringing the appearance back to fresh, pristine and instantly saleable clothing. Whether customers opt for tunnelling, pressing or another one of our value added services, a sold garment far outweighs the end costs and ultimately makes a difference to the bottom line.”
