Exciting times…we’re pleased to announce that Wessex Packaging is moving to a new 70k ft² Distribution Centre.
The building at 26 Mead Avenue on the Houndstone Business Park, Yeovil, provides 70,673 ft² (6,565 m²) of modern warehouse accommodation with dock level loading and includes 12,000ft² office space, and a 50,000ft² yard.
We currently operate from three separate warehouses in Watercombe Park, Yeovil, and hold a wide range of packaging materials to provide customers with a next day delivery service, as well as operating a vendor managed inventory solution for major customers.
The new Distribution Centre will provide a multi-functional operating space with pallet and bulk storage; dock-level loading; and shared user capability on the 3-acre site, enabling us to operate a more efficient and customer-focused operating process.
This investment is a further step in the growth of Wessex Packaging, as the company expands to provide an increased service offering to businesses across the South West, South Wales and nationally.
The national sales, procurement and customer service teams will continue to be based until 2019 at Wessex Packaging’s HQ at Barrington House, Yeovil, before the business consolidates at the 26 Mead Avenue address.
Our MD, Mark Barter, says:
“I’m delighted to announce this next stage in our growth, and to take the keys to our new Distribution Centre. This investment is another milestone in our success and growth as a company and will help us supply and serve our customers to an even higher standard.
I’m extremely proud of the whole Wessex Team and their hard work to get this new facility operational and am looking forward to the benefits that this will provide for our valued customers in the years to come.”
Mark is pictured receiving the keys to the new Distribution Centre from Philip Roberts, partner of RMW Knight Chartered Surveyors.
