Expansion plans for DCS Europe

Stratford-upon-Avon based DCS Europe has signed a lease for a 75,000 sq ft warehouse at St. Modwen’s Long Marston Business Park

This will increase the space available to DCS Central Distribution by a massive 50 per cent, allowing the ambitious growth plans of DCS to be fulfilled. The company aims to hit £200 million sales by the end of 2015 with the anticipated creation of an additional 30 jobs. DCS is well on track with sales this year, projecting £150 million.

Denys Shortt, Founder and CEO of DCS, commented: “A sign of business success is when orders exceed the capacity of the site you own. The extra warehouse at Long Marston Business Park is welcomed and will provide much needed additional space. We will be investing over £250,000 in the Long Marston site with racking and forklift trucks and expect to create 10 more jobs.”

Peter Rudd of St. Modwen, said: “We are very pleased to welcome a Stratford-upon-Avon based, high profile company like DCS to Long Marston Business Park. We are particularly pleased to have completed the deal so quickly after JohnsonVellen vacated the site just eight weeks ago. The speed of the letting pays testament to the quality and location of the business park.”
