PHOENIX UK is investing over £13 million to build a new state-of-the-art distribution hub in Wakefield

Due to rising customer demand, PHOENIX UK is investing over £13 million to build a new state-of-the-art distribution hub in Wakefield to support Numark members with improved access to medicines and OTC products.

On 30th June we had a ground breaking event to officially launch the development works.

Over the last few years, we have seen an outstanding growth in customer demand for our core services outpacing the market.  Wakefield is a prime example of how we are committed to investing in the future by expanding our UK-wide operational capabilities to offer all our customers across the country the best possible service they need, want and deserve. This follows our investment a few years ago in a new, much larger depot in Belfast to meet growing demand in Northern Ireland. This is in addition to introducing market-leading new service solutions such as Golden Tote and Hey Pharmacist.

We were pleased to welcome Cllr Denise Jeffery, Leader of Wakefield Council, to the opening who said: “We are delighted to have this new centre in our district, providing much needed medical supplies to the NHS.

“It’s fantastic to see more investment being made in the Wakefield district and a welcome addition to the district’s fantastic business community.”

We will keep members close to developments with our new distribution centre over the coming months.
