“Pioneering” Yorkshire fulfilment centre set to create jobs with new venture
A Leeds fulfilment centre is up and running having signed their first deal with Wide Wings Tiles of Morley.
Between 10 and 20 jobs are set to be created at the Curo Fulfilment facility store, which is operated by Pegasus World Holding Group Ltd.
Curo Fulfilment, which is located at the £200m Logic Leeds industrial estate in south Leeds stores, packs and delivers goods for its customers.
Martin Doyle, operations director, Pegasus said: “It is tremendous news that we have completed our first deal. We would like to thank Vijay Maniyar of Wide Wings Tiles for putting his faith in our new venture. We look forward to working very closely with Vijay to make Wide Wings Tiles even more successful than it already is.
“In essence, we take the pressure off companies to allow them to focus on their core business of sourcing, ordering and selling their products. We do the storing, packing and distribution, with integrated software giving our clients real-time visibility of their orders
“This is a pioneering business venture which we’re extremely excited about. Unlike other fulfilment centres, we are happy to take products of any size. Customers can choose a package that suits their volumes and needs, which will leave them more time to grow their business.
“At the moment we are using a large area of our existing warehouse at Logic Leeds, but will be expanding into a nearby 61,000 sq ft bespoke unit at Logic Leeds this autumn.”
Doyle added: “This unit is planned to have serviced offices so we should be in a great position to offer new start-ups and established businesses an opportunity to work in an office at an inexpensive cost while being close to their products. This will limit expenditure on both leasing premises elsewhere and expensive additional staff.”
Vijay Maniyar of Wide Wings Tiles commented: “The service that Curo Fulfilment offers is of immense value to us. By completely taking care of the logistics side of our business, we are free to concentrate on our core work.
“It’s such a brilliant, yet such a simple, idea. In the past, we have spent too much time concentrating on making sure our products are stored and delivered safely and correctly. Now we don’t have to worry about that.
“And that means we have time to expand our sales and marketing operation, which, in turn, should mean increased turnover, profits – and jobs.”
