Specialised industrial services provider ERIKS has announced a multi-million-pound investment programme in a new fulfilment centre and head office in Oldbury, West Midlands. The investment will substantially increase the Netherlands-headquartered firm’s capability and capacity to fulfil far more deliveries than ever before, with accuracy, speed, and efficiency for all of its customers.
The new site is located between two major motorway junctions on the M5, providing excellent transport links, and covers over 11,000m², with extensive warehouse facilities, loading bays and office space. The new building has already been constructed and the company is in the process of fitting out, in readiness for its opening in summer of 2021.
Once complete, the new fulfilment centre will be the most advanced of its kind in the industry, with a combination of advanced storage solutions working with the latest warehouse management technology controlling automated vertical picking systems, rapid transit conveyors and integrated vision and weighing equipment.
ERIKS’ UK and Ireland CEO, David Gillies, explains, “This is an exciting development for our customers, and a huge endorsement by our parent company in both our team and the ongoing success of our business. We recently celebrated our 80th year as a major industrial services provider and are excited to be embarking on the next phase of our development. The new fulfilment centre will become our primary hub and headquarters in the UK & Ireland, enabling ERIKS to set the standard in quality, accuracy and value of service provided to all our customers.”
