Power solutions firm Cummins has opened a new UK Logistics Centre (UKLC), its first cross-business operations hub, in the East Midlands.
The 435,000 sq ft centre in Apex Park, Daventry, UK, consolidates the storage capacity previously shared across both Cummins and third-party warehouses to support its UK manufacturing sites and its aftermarket products, under one roof.
“It is a fantastic achievement to see the Cummins UK Logistics Centre come to fruition,” said Andy Fenn, site leader for UKLC. “This project truly demonstrates Cummins’ continued investment within the UK and a new way for Cummins to manage its logistics and supply chain network within Europe. In the current climate where jobs have been significantly impacted by COVID-19, I’m proud we’ve created nearly 100 new roles in the area, in addition to the Cummins workforce currently employed in Daventry and Rugby.
“I am delighted to see the opening of Cummins’ new UK Logistics Centre, here in the heart of Daventry and the constituency,” said Chris Heaton-Harris, MP for Daventry. “It is wonderful that Cummins has invested so much in this area and is such good news after what has been a very difficult year. I am also very impressed to learn about how much effort and research has been put into addressing climate change and conserving natural resources.”
