Brand doubles online capacity

11 May 2021

LIFESTYLE BRAND MADE.COM will open an additional 350,000 sq ft of new warehousing over two phases at the London Gateway Logistics Park in Essex.

The company expects to double its onsite capacity by exercising the expansion option in its lease agreement.

The first phase will complete by August this year and the second in April 2022, to help it meet customer demand for online retail and further optimise its supply chain. 

MADE.COM COO Nicola Thompson, said: “We are thrilled to expand our warehousing operations at London Gateway as we respond to continued growth in customer demand for our exclusive designs.

“Combined with our innovative ‘just in time’ supply chain model, this expansion of our warehousing facility in Tilbury is an exciting step towards achieving our long-term strategy to grow the business sustainably, as we continue to invest in operational efficiency and become the design destination for digital natives.”

DP World park development director Oliver Treneman said: “We are delighted that MADE will be expanding its distribution facility at our Logistics Park and taking advantage of the land we currently have available for development. 

Over the past decade, DP World has invested nearly £2bn in UK infrastructure and logistical solutions. When MADE first approached us, they were a young and dynamic new entrant to the market and the ability to scale up was a key consideration for them - we have demonstrated both a flexible approach and that we are able to deliver.
