Travis Perkins to build new Cardiff warehouse

Construction is scheduled to start in September and Travis Perkins is currently interviewing bidders.

The seven acre site will serve a large proportion of the South West and Wales – connecting a sixth of the entire Travis Perkins merchant branch network with the widest range of heavy-side materials in the market.

The centre is due for completion during the second quarter of 2014 and will serve 94 Travis Perkins branches.

Kevin Appleton, Chairman of Travis Perkins, said: “The opening of this new Regional Distribution Centre in Cardiff is exciting news, not just for our customers who will benefit from an even wider range of products and improved service, but for our employees who are part of a constantly-evolving company.

“This new site will also create a number of great career opportunities for people in the local area.

“We are committed to making our products available when and where our customers need them, so that they are able to say yes to many more jobs on tighter timescales, with the reassurance that Travis Perkins can deliver.

“We announced plans to open another regional distribution centre in Warrington earlier this year, and this new site in Cardiff is further evidence of this commitment to delivering market leading service to all our customers.”
