GEFCO UK has announced a major investment with a new purpose built logistics solutions centre located in South Liverpool, in the North–West of England.
The new £10 million, purpose built facility will provide logistics and supply chain solutions and help optimise supply chains for GEFCO’s customers. The new supply chain hub will enable GEFCO to deliver unique logistics solutions, by working alongside manufacturers to design true value-adding partnerships that strengthen competitiveness. Additionally, the specialist warehouse will increase volume and open up opportunities for significant business growth.
Opening in August 2017, the new 12,000m² facility marks the next step in the development of a blueprint for GEFCO’s supply chain excellence programme which will be rolled out in other strategic locations worldwide. Not only will it increase capacity within the business but it will also drive growth locally with around 100 new jobs expected to be created in South Liverpool as a result.
Councillor Malcolm Kennedy, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Transport and Deputy Lord Mayor said: “We are delighted that GEFCO UK are making this significant investment which will create new jobs. It will strengthen the region’s manufacturing base and provide for further growth.”
Zsolt Vecsera, Managing Director, GEFCO UK said: “This is a significant and exciting investment from GEFCO UK. We are delighted to be embarking on this journey to continue being a market leader in automotive sequencing and go from strength to strength.”
