A new Screwfix warehouse has opened in Stafford – to make sure employees can socially distance.

Wincanton has completed the 128,000 sq ft distribution centre on Prologis Park on behalf of its customer.

The new warehouse will add to its network of four distribution centres across Staffordshire and will support the hardware retailer in its ‘continuing business growth.’

It will also ensure that Screwfix employees continue to stay safe at work and observe social distancing guidelines as volumes increase.

The new distribution centre is in addition to volume that Wincanton has taken on through its shared user network during Covid-19.

Paul Taylor, contract general manager at Wincanton, said: “Mobilising an end-to-end solution to support the Screwfix business with a seamless customer experience in just four weeks is quite an achievement, and demonstrates our agility and commitment to our customers.

“Wincanton’s ability to match space across our network and work in a flexible way ensures we continue to add value to our customer’s delivery and service proposition.”

Rosemary Wilkins, director of logistics at Screwfix, added: “It’s great to work with a logistics partner who can draw upon their scale to mobilise quickly to support the changing requirements of the business.”
