AO opens fourth warehouse in Crewe

AO has opened its fourth warehouse in Crewe, creating over 80 new jobs and adding over 300,000 sq ft of new distribution space.

The company is occupying the Crewe 305 site at Crewe Commercial Park from this month. It already has three warehouses in the town. The new site will house over 200,000 appliances, to ensure that products are always available when needed.

Over the last 18 months, AO has increased its warehousing capacity by over 80%, creating over 1,200 jobs across the business. New sites have also opened in Stafford, Stoke and Crewe.

Tony Chrystal, Director of Operations at AO Logistics, said “It’s fantastic to see AO both growing its logistics base in the North-West and providing even more job opportunities for the people of Cheshire. The rapid expansion of AO Logistics is really a testament to the hard work of our people and how much we’ve grown over the last 18 months.”

The 305,360 sq ft warehouse is the second constructed by logistics developer Panattoni at Crewe Commercial Park and the biggest consented in the area for over a decade.
