Award-winning e-tailer Wiggle has added a 323,000 square foot warehouse in Wolverhampton, a move which is expected to bring a significant number of new jobs to the region.
Based on the Goodman-owned and newly developed Citadel Logistics Centre, the retailer’s new plot is a state of the art logistics facility with quick access to Junction 10 of the M6 and six miles from Junction 1 of the M5. The location provides excellent dual carriageway access to the national and international markets through its road, rail and air links.
The past two years have seen Wiggle post record breaking sales and revenue growth, serving more than one million customers in over 70 countries.
Nicholas Pink, operations and programme director of Wiggle, said. “We are delighted to confirm our move to such a prestigious development. The move demonstrates Wiggle’s continuous growth and ambition. We believe the location and space of the new warehouse will provide Wiggle with a competitive advantage as we scale up our operations in the UK and overseas."
Earlier this year, Goodman also teamed up with the e-retailer to offer bike services and repairs on site at its business parks across the UK. The partnership enabled Wiggle, as an online only retailer, to provide a face-to-face bike service to its growing online customer base.
