Dixons Carphone looks to consolidate at Newark

Dixons Carphone is considering plans to consolidate distribution and repair operations at its Newark site, which would result in the closure of its operation at Wednesbury.

A spokesperson said: “As part of the on-going integration process, we have been reviewing our two Services divisions to find the best way to bring them together and create a single operating model that is efficient, sustainable and delivers for our customers.

“Following much consideration, our distribution and repair centre in Newark has been identified as the most appropriate location for our growing business and so we will now consult with colleagues about relocating our Wednesbury operations to this site.

“Should our proposals go ahead, every single person will be offered a role in the new operation and to help our colleagues, we are offering considerable assistance to relocate or commute.

“Where colleagues feel unable to move, we are proposing significantly enhanced redundancy packages and redeployment support. We value the wealth of knowledge and experience in our colleagues and will be working very closely with everyone affected over the coming months to support them as we enter into consultations.”
