NEW DISTRIBUTION CENTRE FOR EURO CAR PARTS

The 778,000 sq.ft. bespoke facility is to be built on the Birch
Coppice Estate in Dordon, Staffordshire. PHASE 1 is due for
completion January 2016. It will include 47,500 sq ft offices and
customer and colleague training suites, alongside 4 level access
doors and 64 dock doors.
The facility will stock over 150,000 different product lines and
despatch over 200,000 items each night to the branch network.
Euro Car Parts currently occupy over 600,000 sq ft (inc mezz floors)
of warehousing on the same estate which will be retained and
transformed into a specialist facility for collision, coatings and green
parts.
Martin Gray, CEO of Euro Car Parts, commented: “Actions speak
louder than words and this unprecedented investment demonstrates
our long-term commitment not just to the UK aftermarket but to
our customers and our people. We are determined to continue
maximising our logistics capability and launch pioneering, unique
and truly added-value solutions for our customers. I would like
to sincerely thank our customers, our supplier partners and all of
our people for their continued loyalty and support. Together we
continue to prove that we are indeed greater than the sum of our
parts.”
Award winning developer, IM Properties completed the pre-let and
CBRE acted for Euro Car Parts in the search and acquisition of the
new premises.
