ASOS opens £90m warehouse

Online fashion retailer ASOS has opened a new warehouse in Lichfield, Staffordshire.

The £90 million facility will hire 2,000 people over the next three years.

The retailer has already recruited more than 700 people to work at the site, which it said would serve customers in the UK and in over 150 countries around the world.

ASOS expects to ship more than 30 million units in the warehouse’s first year and up to 4.5 million units every week once the site is fully operational and automation is complete.

The company explained that the new facility will help it meet increasing customer demand and support its ambitions to reach £7 billion of annual revenue within the next three to four years.

“We are thrilled to be celebrating the opening of our brand-new warehouse in Lichfield, which will support our ambitious international growth plans and bring a significant number of jobs to the area,” said Mat Dunn, chief operating officer, ASOS. “Our choice of Lichfield reflects the skills and talent it has to offer and we’re looking forward to becoming part of the local community in the years ahead.”
