Marks & Spencer creates 360 jobs at new distribution centre
Marks & Spencer is to open a new food distribution centre in Milton Keynes next month.
Spanning 365,000 square feet, the facility will create 360 jobs and will supply ambient M&S food products to the south of England.
The move will enable the retailer to increase its ambient product capacity by up to 60% and widen its range of cleaning and household products, grocery items and soft drinks and wine.
M&S Food managing director Stuart Machin said: “Our new distribution centre is great news for Milton Keynes and a major step forward for M&S, unlocking the value of our food supply chain and supporting our future growth plans. Many of our customers’ shopping habits have changed over recent months and our new distribution centre will enable us to respond faster and more flexibly to customer demand, providing greater product availability and significantly improving the service we provide our customers.”
The facility will be operated by XPO Logistics.
