Whistl to open “super depot” in Bolton

Whistl is set to move into a new “super depot” for its northern operations in late Spring. The company has taken a ten year lease on M&G Real Estate’s Logistics 225 unit at Harworth Group’s flagship Logistics North development in Bolton.

The new site allows Whistl to consolidate existing operations in Leeds and Warrington onto one site that has 33% greater capacity for future expansion of its existing mail, packet and parcel and ecommerce business.  The site also offers immediate access onto Junction 4 of the M61.

The building has 4 level access doors, 20 dock levellers, 50 trailer parking spaces, 31 loading positions and 222 car parking spaces.

As part of the move Whistl will begin its recruitment campaign in the Bolton area in conjunction with Bolton Council, through its Team Bolton partnership, to recruit people to the site.  Whistl has offered staff employed at the existing Leeds and Warrington depots the opportunity to work at the new site.

Whistl said 500 jobs are to be created at the Logistics North development.

Nick Wells, CEO Whistl: said: “We are delighted to confirm that we are investing in this grade A facility at Logistics North in Bolton.  The new depot will enable us to provide an excellent working environment for our colleagues as well enable us to continue providing high quality and efficient services to our customers.  We look forward to working with Bolton Council on recruiting people to work at Whistl in the coming months.”
