An East Kilbride-based e-commerce company in Glasgow, Dimensions Scotland, partnering with Next, Debenhams Online, Ian Macleod Distillers, and Public Health Scotland, has secured banking support in the midst of a major expansion.

Dimensions Scotland secured £ 522,000 from HSBC UK to purchase a new warehouse after demand for its services increased significantly during the pandemic. Dimensions works with its customers by offering outsourced warehousing and order fulfillment services, as well as a variety of shipping and packaging services.

It currently rents a property on Glenburn Road in East Kilbride, but it quickly grew out of space during the pandemic due to demand from a growing clientele.

The new 27,000 square feet warehouse on Albion Way in East Kilbride will be used in conjunction with the existing warehouse on Glenburn Road to help the company meet growing demand as sales are expected to increase by more than 50 percent in the next fiscal year alone.
