Barbour brings distribution together under one roof

Barbour is centralising its distribution, which is currently spread across three warehouses in the UK, in a new site in Bedesway, South Shields.

The British brand said it has made “a significant investment” in a 270,000 sq ft site, which is located close to its headquarters in Simonside.

“Our new one-site distribution centre will create a superb facility with the ability to house all of our distribution in one place with the flexibility for the future,” said Barbour managing director Steve Buck.

“Up until now, we have maintained three separate warehouse sites – two at Follingsby Park and one for raw materials opposite head office. The new one-site distribution centre with its location so close to our offices and the factory brings all of our teams together in the home of the brand. 

”This will increase efficiency and enable us to improve aspects of communication across all the different business departments.”

Barbour is in discussions with staff about the transition to the new distribution centre. This move is planned to take place over a phased period from 17 May through to the end of February 2018.
