NEW DISTRIBUTION CENTRE FOR EURO CAR PARTS

Euro Car Parts is to open a very large new distribution centre.

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 recycled 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.
