Fashion and lifestyle brand FatFace is set to expand its distribution operations with a new facility in Havant, Portsmouth, to help “drive” the business forward.
FatFace has said that it is in advanced negotiations with Portsmouth City Council to acquire a new 120,000 square foot distribution centre at Dunsbury Hill Farm, which will be bigger enough to support its growth in the UK and overseas.
Simon Ratcliffe, infrastructure director at FatFace, said: “For some time we have been exploring options to expand our distribution facilities in order to support the company’s ambitious growth plans. 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.”
The lifestyle retailer will retain its existing head office site at Ridgway in Havant.
