International supply chain specialist, Advanced Supply Chain Group (ASCG), has expanded its UK footprint with a new warehouse in Corby at Hunters Point. 

The Yorkshire-headquartered company, which works with many of the world’s most successful retail and manufacturing brands, has invested £2m in the new 240,000 sq ft site, with an overall commitment to invest £15m over the next 10 years.

This adds to the business’ Midlands presence alongside its site at Eisemann Way in Corby, which opened in 2012 and has since had £20m of investment.  

Already employing over 350 people in the region, Advanced Supply Chain Group will create 150 more jobs with this move, totalling local employment numbers to more than 500.

 The increased capacity will allow ASCG to accommodate 100m more units and the site is already processing significant volumes after securing contracts for value-added services, fulfilment and returns with leading e-commerce, omnichannel and high street retailers. 

Mike Danby MBE, CEO of ASCG said: “Last year, we invested in our overseas operations as part of our international growth strategy and to ensure the business and our customers would be in the best possible position after Brexit. As the deadline for this has continued to drift, we’ve seen increasing enquiries and growth of existing contracts in the UK market too. Northamptonshire has established itself as a logistics hub so seemed like the natural place to expand.

 We work with online, high street and omnichannel retailers with unique supply chain challenges. That’s why we’ve worked hard over the past decade to invest in our technology and talent to provide bespoke intelligent supply chain solutions which gives retailers the flexibility, agility and speed to market they need to stay ahead of the competition.

Above all, we are committed to creating a great place to work by investing in the development of our first-class people and their wellbeing. This creates a team with unparalleled skills and a culture to be proud of.”

This latest announcement follows news last year that the business opened new sites in Dubai and the Czech Republic. Now with eight UK sites and operations in Europe, the Middle East and Hong Kong, ASCG provides an intelligent supply chain solution across the globe.
