Meanwhile CNP’s sales have grown dramatically during the past two years and the new warehousing increases the amount of stock it can hold, meaning it will be able to respond more quickly to customer demand.
CNP’s success is due to its increasing appeal across a wide range of sports, from body building to cycling – the company now works with athletes in virtually every arena.

Kayes and his team are confident of gaining these since they actually specified the facility to the ultra-high standards required by the food industry.
