20,000 sq m building is part of the £25 million investment and will double Arco’s capacity.
Here is how Arco’s new £25 million distribution centre on the outskirts of Hull – which could create 200 jobs - could look.
The safety company has teamed up with contractor Clugston to begin construction of its national distribution centre extension.
The 20,000 sq m building on the A63 forms part of the £25 million investment in the site. It will double Arco’s capacity by adding warehouse and logistics capabilities.
The extension, linked to the existing building, will be able to store 40,000 pallets.
It is part of Arco’s £55 million investment initiative to support its ambitious growth plans and demonstrates its commitment to the local economy.
Thomas Martin, non-exec chairman at Arco, said: “Because of our natural connection to the area, we are dedicated to driving the local economy, which is why I’m delighted to start the build of the new National Distribution Centre.
“As a company, we have been investing heavily in both the area and the sustainability of the businesses to ensure its growth continues in the future.
“As well as the jobs it will potentially create for local people, we also decided to appoint a Humberside based construction firm to partner with for the work to further drive regional economy.”
