The Coronavirus outbreak and expected stock shortages in the country has prompted Ableworld to ramp up its stockholding by £600k.
This means stock levels will increase by 25%.
It comes as the company confirms it anticipates a 31% increase in profits within its main trading company, Ableworld UK.
Ableworld has already stated a like-for-like sales increase and, in its last financial year, showed a 15.79% increase. The company told AMP its accounts are currently being finalised.
Commenting on the Coronavirus forced stock move, Mike Williams, managing director at Ableworld, said: “With the uncertainty of stocks in the coming weeks and months, the company has taken the decision increase its overall stock holding by 25% – around an extra £600,000.”
He added: “Luckily over the last couple of years we have ensured we purchase a lot more British made products, however even British Made often have imported components.
Concluding: “Fortunately, we are in a strong position and it is the beginning of the season, so the decision was an easy one to make.”
