Major new UK headquarters on the way

Specialised industrial services provider ERIKS has announced a multi-million-pound investment programme in a major new UK headquarters and fulfilment centre in Oldbury. 

Due to open in the summer, the new fulfilment centre is between two major motorway junctions on the M5, providing excellent transport links, and covers over 11,000m², with extensive warehouse facilities, loading bays and office space. 

This will dramatically increase ERIKS’ capability and capacity to fulfil far more deliveries than ever before, with greater accuracy, speed and efficiency for all customers. The new building has already been constructed and is now in the process of fitting out, in readiness for its opening later this summer.

Once complete, the new fulfilment centre will be the most advanced of its kind, with a combination of advanced storage solutions working with the latest warehouse management technology controlling automated vertical picking systems, rapid transit conveyors and integrated vision and weighing equipment.  

The company’s goal is to reach consistent 100% pick accuracy, with full traceability, to ensure that every customer order, no matter how complex, is fulfilled precisely in the shortest possible time. 

The new fully-computerised systems will also enable ERIKS to give customers far greater visibility of all orders, from sale through to delivery, while creating a dynamic new digital platform on which the company can develop new customer service options for the future. 

ERIKS’ CEO for the UK and Ireland, David Gillies, said: “This is an exciting development for our customers, and a huge endorsement by our parent company in our team and the ongoing success of our business.  

"We recently celebrated our 80th year as a major industrial services provider and are excited to be embarking on the next phase of our development. The new fulfilment centre will become our primary hub and headquarters in the UK and  Ireland, enabling ERIKS to set the standard in quality, accuracy and value of service provided to all our customers.”
