Following a multi-million pound investment, Wolseley Infrastructure announces plans for its Fusion Utilities brand to open a new 160,000-square foot facility in Bolsover, near Chesterfield, just off the M1.
The new Wolseley Infrastructure site will house a wide variety of best-in-class Utilities products which will allow the brand to provide better availability than ever to customers.
The new site will be used as a fulfilment centre to deliver stock directly to customers on-time and in-full nationally, as well as providing services such as Hire & Servicing and housing our Technical Services, National Sales Office and Design Teams.
Located just off the M1 in Bolsover for easy driver access, the new site is due to be ready in April 2024.
John Hancock, managing director at Wolseley UK, said: “This exciting investment has been inspired by our Customer First approach, which has guided our developments ever since Fusion Utilities became part of Wolseley Infrastructure. We believe that the new Chesterfield site will build upon our product and service offerings to provide our customers with an even easier, more streamlined way to meet their Utilities needs.”
“Our dedication to people goes beyond our employees — and we’re proud that the new site will help to support the local community too. It’s all part of our mission to create a Positive Impact in everything we do.”
Planning is already underway for the development, with Neal Lambert, Technical Director at Fusion Utilities, and Simon Dennis, National Operations Director, at the helm of the project.
Initial designs include the warehouse combining a green exterior with building features that mirror the natural landscape, visually showcasing Wolseley Infrastructure’s commitment to being environmentally conscious. The site will also include local vegetation to provide a biodiverse habitat, in addition to having attenuation ponds to reduce flood risks.
Neal Lambert said: “This new warehouse marks an exciting time for Fusion Utilities, with our customers, colleagues and suppliers all reaping the countless benefits this site will provide, in a central location with easy motorway access. The team have been working tirelessly to make sure the site meets all our customer requirements and we can’t wait to unveil it in 2024.”
In addition to this announcement, Fusion Utilities have recently announced the launch of their Essential Product Range (EPR), in conjunction with its Civils brand Burdens. This further reinforces their commitment to provide greater stock availability, by enhancing their current offering. The brand will hold 1,500 lines at mandated levels across the entire branch estate.
