Asos, the London-based online fashion retailer, has announced its plans to invest £90 million in its new warehouse in Lichfield, Staffordshire.
The announcement will help the retailer in creating 2,000 jobs over the course of next 3 years. That’s some good news for those looking for jobs in these tough times.
The new warehouse, spread over a wide area of 437,000 square feet at Fradley Park, is expected to be operational in next 12 months.
Asos has said that the timing will help it gradually ramp-up with testing so as to meet the required capacity for peak trade in 2023.
Substantiating further on the huge investment made in the new warehouse, Nick Beighton, CEO, Asos, has said that the decision yet again shows the confidence Asos has in its future as well as in the talent available in the location.
Once operational, Asos will serve all its customers in the UK and across the globe.
Asos has been selling over 850 reputed brands in addition to selling its own range of apparels and fashion accessories. It generated £2.573 billion in 2019.
