Healthcare firm expands into former Vernon’s Pools site creating 25 jobs

PREVENTATIVE healthcare company PAM Group has doubled the warehouse capacity for its specialist retail business with a £3million investment in new premises on Aintree, which will create more than 20 jobs.

PAM Group has acquired Fortune House, a 30,750sq ft warehouse on the Sefton Business Park which was built in 1989 as a call centre for Vernon’s Pools.

The site on Deltic Way includes an area earmarked for seven smaller units covering a further 18,700 sq ft. Plans for these additional units have been submitted to Sefton Council.

The warehouse will be the main storage and distribution centre for PAM Health, which sells exercise, fitness, sports, ergonomic, physiotherapy and rehabilitation equipment.

Fast-growing PAM Health supplies consumers as well as professionals such as physiotherapists, and healthcare providers.

It has expanded through acquisitions as well as organically, with revenues on track to reach £5m this year.

James Murphy, founder and chief executive of PAM Group, said the investment would initially generate 25 new jobs across PAM Health’s warehousing, sales and customer service operations, rising to 50 over the next couple of years.

Following a fit-out of the warehouse, the company plans to install video recording and photographic studios there alongside a technical support unit.
