Stevensons have shared the Acrewood Way site for years
The Socotec site sits behind Stevensons current Head Office
The adjacent site will be refurbished and be on-stream early in 2021
Following years of continued growth and the addition of hundreds more school partners, the company is making a major investment in their main Distribution Centre.
They will add around 10,000 sq feet at their Acrewood Way site by taking over the adjacent SOCOTEC buildings.
This will provide a mix of new storage capacity and refurbished office space that will come on-stream in early 2021.
An ebullient John Stevenson, Co-CEO, is happy that the adjacent site has now become available. "It is the ideal way to permanently extend our current capacity in St Albans".
He was also clear about the range of benefits that the additional space will provide for both employees and customers.
"Greater office space will allow us to break away from the in-built limitations of our current cramped offices, providing our team with a space that's modern and fitting for a business of our size and potential."
- John Stevenson, Co-CEO, Stevensons
The virtual doubling of the companies warehouse capacity at the site will ensure that they have greater stock holding capability.
"Customers should see an improvement in both product availability and order turnaround."
- John Stevenson, Co-CEO Stevensons
As the adjacent site already shares access with Stevensons current Head office and Distribution Centre, combining the two together will ease the current parking shortage and improve logistical turnaround of supplier deliveries, particularly during the peak period.
