AO opens new warehouse in Stoke-on-Trent

Online electricals retailer AO is opening its third distribution warehouse in four months this week as part of plans to expand its logistics network.

Spanning over 275,000 square feet, the facility in Stoke-on-Trent is the retailer’s biggest warehouse to date.

In recent months, AO has acquired over half a million square feet of new warehousing space across Cheshire and Staffordshire. The new addition takes the retailer’s total number of warehouses to five.

The facility will create 120 new jobs in a range of roles. While the site will be used mainly for distribution to AO’s 18 ‘local hub’ depots nationwide, there are plans for it to include a delivery depot for customers in the Stoke-on-Trent area.

David Ashwell, managing director of AO Logistics, said: “Expanding our logistics network is a crucial step in our growth strategy, so we can continue to serve customers when they need us the most. We’ve really had to act quickly to adapt to an influx in customers following the Covid-19 lockdown. By actively securing more warehousing space and creating hundreds of new, quality jobs in the process, we’re working hard to invest in the future.”
