Yuasa Battery Sales UK has celebrated it’s 30th birthday by opening a new sales and distribution centre in Swindon.

The new facility features 7,000 square metres of warehousing space, brining the company’s industrial and automotive battery units together under the same roof for the first time.

In its 30 years of trading Yuasa has grown to become one of the UK’s biggest suppliers of automotive batteries, selling around 7.5 million batteries in both the UK and Europe.

The Mayor of Swindon Cllr Ray Ballman helped to open the new centre in a ceremony this week. 85% of the Yuasa workforce is now coming from the Swindon area.

Andrew Taylor, managing director of Yuasa UK said: “The location improves our logistics and reduces the company’s carbon footprint significantly.

“In addition, the Swindon area provides an excellent pool of experienced workers as we seek to constantly maintain and improve our customer service.”
