Euro Car Parts (ECP) has opened a third national distribution centre in Tamworth as it seeks to push towards 165 UK branches by the end of the year.
The new 260,000 sq ft facility has 15 docking bays and will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It is close to the 600,000 sq ft unit opened in 2010 and 15 miles away from the 140,000 sq ft collision repair parts facility.
Steve Horne, Director at Euro Car Parts, said: “Our new facility will significantly boost the warehouse capacity for the company, as we continue our ambitious branch opening programme during 2014.”
In addition to providing extra facilities to distribute stock, ECP say the new facility will also have a dedicated 15,000 sq ft training academy, with the aim of working with key suppliers to create a first class training programme.
