Fat Face is planning to expand its distribution operations with a new facility in Havant, Portsmouth, to supports its growth in the UK and overseas.
The lifestyle retailer is in advanced negotiations to acquire a new 120,000 sq ft distribution centre at Dunsbury Hill Farm in addition to its existing head office site at Ridgway in Havant.
“For some time we have been exploring options to expand our distribution facilities in order to support the company’s ambitious growth plans,” said Simon Ratcliffe, infrastructure director at Fat Face. “Having considered a number of locations across the UK, we have decided to maintain our commitment to the Havant region.
“The new site will support our expansion plans whilst allowing us to better serve our customer base. We also look forward to continuing our support for local employment in the Havant area where our excellent staff, which now total 300 people in both head office and our existing distribution facilities, continue to drive this business forward.”
