Dachser is investing in a new integrated logistics centre in Brackmills, Northampton.
The 16.38 acre site will include a 64,000 sq ft cross-dock, a 114,000 sq ft contract logistics warehouse and 21,000 sq ft of office space.
“The growth in our UK business has been significant over the past few years, and an expansion of our existing capacity was essential to sustain our development”, said Nick Lowe, Dachser’s UK managing director.
“By replacing our several facilities in Northampton with a brand new logistics centre on one site, we will be able to operate very efficiently and maximise the opportunities for ourselves and our customers.”
Having incorporated provision for a 26,000 sq ft extension for predicted growth in upcoming years, Dachser will retain current staff as well as create new jobs.
The project is due for completion in March 2014.
