- Sports nutrition company Science in Sport said it had opened a new e-commerce fulfilment facility in Nelson, Lancashire, to drive the online sales of its PhD and SiS brands.

The 16,000 square foot facility was located at a leasehold property adjacent to the company's existing manufacturing and packaging site in Nelson.

It commenced despatching orders on 1 June.

'Our objective is to grow PhD's own online sales aggressively in the same way that we have grown sales from the SiS website, which were up 40% last year,' chief executive Stephen Moon said.

'The opening of the new e-commerce facility, which follows the relaunch of the PhD website, will provide the operational capability to deliver PhD's online growth whilst also delivering efficiencies through the integration of PhD's and SiS's online fulfilment.'
