The expansion reflects the continued growth of the business and will see the firm move its entire warehouse distribution operation from its current location in Bolton to a new facility in Gosport.
The planned move, in July 2017, will support the development of the business operation both in the UK and abroad. The change of facilities will also assist in the evolution of the company’s e-commerce offering.
The Company of Animals is looking to introduce additional supply chain efficiencies into its warehouse operations. Over the next few months the firm will be looking at introducing a number of packaging efficiencies such as carton sizing and pallet utilisation.
Jaeden Iddon, operations manager at The Company of Animals, said: “When we moved to Bolton in 2014, it suited our UK order and customer profile at the time. Over the last three years we have seen fantastic growth for the business and the move to Gosport is an important step for us.”
