The Delivery Group, the e-commerce, mail and pallet specialist, is moving its Northwest operations to a new, £12 million service centre in Warrington.
The company has recently opened new sites in Bristol and Maidstone, and acquired ONEPOST earlier this year.
The new Delivery Group site is in Warrington;s Mountpark business park, and is nearly 138,000 square metres in size. It will employ around 200 staff. As part of this it has made a £1.5 million investment in sortation machinery in order to handle a projected 1 billion items per year around its eight UK sites.
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.”
Steve Stokes, CEO, The Delivery Group, added: “We are very proud to showcase our latest best-in class service centre. We are bringing the very best distribution solutions to our clients through our regional footprint countrywide. Our commitment is to deliver innovative, high-speed, technology-led solutions to clients through our consultative approach – solutions that excel now and into the future.”
Located at J8 M62, the service centre is just 3 miles from the M6/M62 interchange and midway between Manchester and Liverpool, providing access to a population of 2.5 million within a 30 minute drive time.
