AO opens fourth warehouse in Crewe

Online electricals retailer AO has opened its fourth warehouse in Crewe, creating over 80 new jobs and adding more than 300,000 sq ft of new distribution space to its logistics network, in the largest commercial property build of the year in the region.

AO Logistics will occupy the Crewe 305 site at Crewe Commercial Park from this month (November), building on the retailer’s existing logistics hub of three warehouses in the town. It will house over 200,000 appliances.

AO is continuing to invest heavily in its logistics network to support future growth. In the last 18 months it has increased its warehousing capacity by over 80%, rapidly growing its distribution network and creating over 1,200 jobs across the business. This will be the fourth warehouse opened recently, following sites in Stafford and Stoke, and the Latchford site on Weston Road in Crewe.

The move follows AO’s huge push for driver recruitment. The retailer is currently recruiting employed drivers nationwide, with over 100 logistics vacancies available, including HGV Drivers, 7.5t Delivery Drivers and Warehouse Operatives, with generous benefits and new starter bonuses of up to £1000.

Tony Chrystal, Director of Operations at AO Logistics, said: “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 – I can’t wait to see how this investment benefits our operation.”
