St. Modwen Logistics has signed a deal with recipe box retailer, Gousto, to deliver a 295,000ft2 fulfilment centre at St. Modwen Park Burton.
The £40m bespoke, chilled fulfilment centre will increase Gousto’s operational capacity by 40%.
The warehouse space will host a highly automated, chilled fulfilment centre where Gousto recipe boxes are picked and packed before being delivered to homes across the country. Hundreds of new jobs will be created to run the operation, including engineering managers and warehouse managers to operatives and front-line leaders.
The new site will be powered by Gousto’s technology, which enables the company to meet growing demand by maximising daily picking volumes.
Polly Troughton, Managing Director at St. Modwen Logistics said: “It’s fantastic to be working in partnership with Gousto and to offer them a bespoke, sustainable warehouse as their operational needs increase and their business flourishes, bringing further employment to the area to support economic growth.”
Developed to the Swan Standard, the fulfilment centre will include three-storey offices and delivers a BREEAM Excellent and EPC A+ rating.
