The Delivery Group moves to new £12 Million Warrington HQ
The Delivery Group is moving its North-West operation to a larger £12 million service centre in Warrington as the company prepares for unprecedented volumes.
In what has been a year of rapid and impressive expansion, the new Warrington site follows last month’s opening of an £8 million 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 – situated on Warrington’s Mountpark business park – covers 137,865 sq ft and will host circa 200 employees. The Delivery Group has also made a £1.5 million investment in new sortation machinery as it positions to handle volumes of over 1 billion items per year across its 8 sites.
“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.”
– Paul Carvell, Chairman, The Delivery Group
“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.”
– Steve Stokes, CEO, The Delivery Group
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. Lighting at the site will be part powered through solar panels, further driving The Delivery Group’s push towards a greener operation following its recent investment in an electric vehicle delivery fleet.
