Online electrical goods retailer AO has opened its fourth warehouse in Crewe.
The new more than 300,000ft2 distribution centre is set to create 80 new jobs, and is the largest commercial property build of the year in the area.
It will host more than 200,000 appliances, with the increased stockholding capacity allowing products to always be available when customers request them.
Over the last 18 months, the company has increased its warehousing capacity by more than 80%.
This fourth site follows the opening of three other sites built in Stafford, Stoke, and the Latchford site on Weston Road in Crewe, respectively.
Tony Chrystal, Director of Operations at AO Logistics said: “The rapid expansion of AO Logistics is really a testament to the hard work of our people and how much we’ve grown over the last 18 months – I can’t wait to see how this investment benefits our operation.”
The 305,360ft2 warehouse is the second developed by Panattoni at Crewe Commercial Park and the biggest consented in the area for more than a decade.
Retail specialist law firm Gordons, advised AO on the letting.
