UK-based distribution giant Westcoast has announced the expansion of their operational capacity with the lease of a new 340,000 square foot warehouse facility in Andover, Hampshire, UK. The facility is due to become operational this year and will effectively double Westcoast’s UK warehouse space. The new warehouse will add to existing facilities in Theale, Berkshire; Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire; Wilford, Nottinghamshire and St.Albans, Hertfordshire.

“This new facility demonstrates the level of confidence the Board has in the business and its future growth in the UK as well as in exports, expansion businesses and services – some of which will be based in Andover,” commented Alex Tatham, Westcoast’s Managing Director.

Andy Newberry, Westcoast’s Operations Director, added: “This new space will ensure our fast-growing business will not be constrained by capacity, as well as provide some consolidation of third-party warehouses. In addition, it will give the business some further room to provide ever more logistics services to a wide range of customers – from retail to managed print, IT resellers to system integrators.”

Tatham added: “New space will allow us to manage whatever Brexit throws at us as well as build new services for some of the world’s greatest technology vendors and customers. It is an expansion plan that shows our industry, and the whole country, that one of its greatest success stories is still investing locally and confident in its future place in the UK.”

A significant number of jobs will be created by the warehouse expansion.
