We are opening three new flagship distribution depots in Banbury, Bognor Regis and Widnes
as part of a £56m nationwide investment programme we are making to our manufacturing and distribution capabilities across the UK. The investment programme will ensure we continue to deliver fresh products that meet the nation’s ever-changing tastes.
The opening of the new depots will lay down a solid platform for the future of our business, enhancing our distribution capabilities, enabling us to meet consumer demand, and ensure we can successfully deliver our strategic customer partnerships.
The investment programme will also create 150 new jobs in total, involve no headcount reductions, and see new sites developed in Banbury, Widnes and Bognor Regis, as well as site expansions in Stockton and Burnley.
Ahead of the depots opening, we are recruiting for 54 roles at Banbury, 36 at Bognor Regis, and 27 at Widnes. Roles available include driver positions including non-LGV development drivers, LGV C and LGV CE drivers, as well as a number of warehouse team members.
