Hartlebury, UK - Bepco Group, the global supplier of parts and accessories for tractors and agricultural machinery, has announced that together with TVH, it plans to open a new UK warehouse in 2020 close to its existing site in Hartlebury, creating up to 50 additional employment opportunities in the local area.
The new warehouse based in Kidderminster will have a surface area of 12,000m sq. with the capacity to expand to 17,000m sq. and will hold more than 70,000 replacement parts for agricultural machinery and forklift applications.
Both Bepco and TVH have grown significantly in recent years therefore the new warehouse is essential in supporting and sustaining domestic growth, while providing a solid foundation to support both groups’ future ambitions.
It will allow Bepco UK and TVH UK to stock the majority of their product ranges in the UK removing the effect of potential customs or air shipment delays on urgent deliveries, as most items will be stocked in the UK warehouse. In addition, the new UK footprint will enable both Bepco and TVH to offer customers later cut-off times for placing orders.
John Percy, Managing Director of Bepco UK, comments, “Despite recent economic volatility surrounding the Brexit negotiations, Bepco continues to thrive and grow at a rapid pace.
"The new warehouse is planned to be three times bigger than our existing Hartlebury site and will ensure that, whatever the outcome of Brexit, Bepco will be able to deliver an even better service to its customers in UK and Ireland.
"This is a significant investment from TVH demonstrating their trust in our workforce, and commitment to their future, as well as the local area. It also represents an important step for Bepco UK and we are all excited about the future opportunities this will bring.”
Construction work is expected to start soon with the new warehouse estimated to be up and running within a year.
