Travis Perkins to Build New Cardiff Distribution Centre
Travis Perkins is currently interviewing bidders for their plans to build a new Regional Distribution Centre in Cardiff that will serve 94 Travis Perkins branches. Construction is scheduled to start in September with completion due during the second quarter of 2014. The seven acre site will serve a large proportion of the South West and Wales – connecting a sixth of the entire Travis Perkins merchant branch network with the widest range of heavy-side materials in the market.
Kevin Appleton, Chairman of Travis Perkins, said: “The opening of this new Regional Distribution Centre in Cardiff is exciting news, not just for our customers who will benefit from an even wider range of products and improved service, but for our employees who are part of a constantly-evolving company. This new site will also create a number of great career opportunities for people in the local area.”
