Joe Browns embarks on £2 million warehouse upgrade

Joe Browns is investing £2 million in a warehouse upgrade to support its growth ambitions and improve pick face efficiency.

Part of the fashion and lifestyle retailer’s head office building in Leeds, the existing warehouse was extended in November 2020 at a cost of £1.5 million.   

The new upgrade will see the installation of a 110m conveyor system and racking that will build on Joe Browns’ existing pick face efficiency.  This will enable deliveries into the depot to be picked directly on arrival to double handling replenishment capacity. It will also further reduce delivery times to customers and third party partners with a direct despatch agreement with the retailer. 

With works starting on the upgrade in three weeks, Joe Browns estimates that the improved operation will be functional by its third quarter. The existing facility will continue to operate throughout the works period. 

Darren Abbott, finance director at Joe Browns, said: “As well as remarkable stand-out product, with a Joe Browns point of difference, a customer centric approach is central to our growth ambitions both directly and through third party partners.  

“Getting product there in the most effective and efficient way is key to this. We’ve already outgrown our earlier warehouse extension and this investment will ensure an even more efficient scan and pick capacity as we continue to grow.”
