Almost five hundred jobs are being created in Warrington after approval was given to a brand new distribution hub for Eddie Stobart Logistics.
The £75 million centre will be build next to the company’s existing campus on Barleycastle Lane and will cover an area of just under 635,000 square feet.
The new centre is expected to be completed by the autumn of 2020, bringing 480 brand new jobs and training opportunities to the area. Stobart is spending £6 million pounds on roads in the area which it says will benefit all road users.
A previous application was rejected against officer advice in November 2018, and the revised plans were submitted earlier this year and have now been approved.
Chief Executive Alex Laffey says “The national delivery centre will deliver real investment and create 480 jobs. We are proud to have our national headquarters in Warrington and are committed to supporting the ambitious pans Warrington Borough Council has for economic growth and job creation.
As well as road haulage, Eddie Stobart Logistics also has interests in rail freight, deep sea and inland waterway systems.
