Bedford Warehouse

Bedford Head Office and Warehouse

Prior to 1979 Zodiac operated from offices at the Maynards factory in Vale Road, Finsbury Park, London. Warehousing and distribution was sub-contracted to London toy wholesalers, the Angel Toy Group, later part of Hestair. Once expansion was under way the need for a totally integrated in-house operation became essential. New warehousing and offices were being planned in Bedford and a lease was taken there in 1979. Transport was provided by TDP Express from Hitchin in liveried vehicles.
