GEFCO invests in new supply chain hub in Liverpool

GEFCO UK has today announced a major investment with a new purpose built logistics centre located in South Liverpool, in the North West of England.

The £10 million facility will provide logistics and supply chain solutions and help optimise supply chains for GEFCO’s customers. GEFCO says it will help it deliver logistics solutions, by working alongside manufacturers to design true value-adding partnerships that strengthen competitiveness.

Additionally, the specialist warehouse it explains will increase volume and open up opportunities for significant business growth.

Opening in August 2017, the new 12,000 square metre facility marks the next step in the development of a blueprint for GEFCO’s supply chain excellence program which will be rolled out in other strategic locations worldwide.

GEFCO says it not only will it increase capacity within the business but it will also drive growth locally with around 100 new jobs expected to be created in South Liverpool as a result.

GEFCO UK managing director, Zsolt Vecsera says: “This is a significant and exciting investment from GEFCO UK. We are delighted to be embarking on this journey to continue being a market leader in automotive sequencing and go from strength to strength.”
