Screwfix opens new distribution centre in Stafford ahead of peak

Wincanton is developing a new distribution centre for client Screwfix in northern England.

The 128,000 square foot site at Prologis Park in Stafford will be the hardware and tools retailer’s fifth in Staffordshire.

It will open in August, with the capacity to support Screwfix through peak season later this year and with the space and facilities available to allow staff to socially distance.

Paul Taylor, contract general manager at Wincanton, said: “Mobilising an end-to-end solution to support the Screwfix business with a seamless customer experience in just four weeks is quite an achievement and demonstrates our agility and commitment to our customers.

“Wincanton’s ability to match space across our network and work in a flexible way ensures we continue to add value to our customer’s delivery and service proposition.”

Rosemary Wilkins, director of logistics at Screwfix, said: “It’s great to work with a logistics partner who can draw upon their scale to mobilise quickly to support the changing requirements of the business.”
