E-commerce, mail and pallet specialist The Delivery Group is moving its north-west operation to a larger £12m (US$15m) service centre in Warrington, UK, as the company prepares for increasing volumes.
The new Warrington site follows last month’s opening of a new site in Bristol, and a new site in Maidstone which began operations in March. The business also successfully acquired ONEPOST earlier this year.
The Warrington site will cover 137,865ft2 and will host circa 200 employees. The Delivery Group has also made a £1.5m (US$1.9m) investment in new sortation machinery as it positions to handle volumes of over one billion items per year across its eight sites.
Lighting at the site will be part powered through solar panels, further driving The Delivery Group’s push toward a greener operation following its recent investment in an electric vehicle delivery fleet.
Paul Carvell, chairman, The Delivery Group, commented, “Since the management buyout last year, The Delivery Group has invested significantly in its people, facilities and fleet. The result is a market leading company that can offer even better service to its customers with the additional capacity to launch new services over the coming year.”
