UK-based cutlery company Edge of Belgravia has opened its first state-side warehouse, in Chicago, in response to  demand from the U.S. market. With its new warehouse location, knives can now be shipped to Beverly Hills, CA, in three days and to New York in two days, the company said.

“We can now supply the rapidly growing demand for our knives across the pond with no need for overseas shipping costs and delays,” director at Edge of Belgravia, Freddie Ostlund said.

The warehouse is a natural response to the increasing demand, the company stated. The warehouse, located in Elk Grove Village, outside of Chicago, is both a fulfillment and distribution center operated by third-party warehouse operator American Cargo Express.
