Our Facilities

Kernow’s Headquarters are located in the South West of England and encompasses our head offices, main distribution centre and purpose built pre-fabrication workshop. It’s also where our vast storage warehouses are located (totalling over 25,000 sq. ft.), enabling us to hold high levels of stock and an extensive product range to meet the needs of our clients and their projects.

With additional distribution depots located in Bristol & London and a fleet of bespoke delivery vehicles, we are able to deliver the majority of orders using our own delivery network. In addition to this, we also work closely with the UK's leading transport companies to ensure we can deliver even those exceptionally large or complex orders, or those occasional orders which fall outside our own delivery area. See our Delivery Information page for further details.
