12 October, 2007
Warburtons is expanding its Scottish operation with the creation of a new 20,000 sq ft distribution depot at Eurocentral Business Park, near Glasgow.
The company, which bakes 1.7 million loaves a week in Scotland, will use the depot to add 40 new delivery routes to the 55 already serviced from its nearby Bellshill plant in Scotland.Ian Connell, Warburtons general manager in Scotland, said: "Such has been the scale of our success in Scotland that we have outgrown the distribution facility attached to our bakery in Bellshill."Some staff will transfer the short distance from Bellshill to Eurocentral and Warburtons will be recruiting 25 additional staff. Warburtons, which is about to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its arrival in Scotland, currently employs over 370 people between its bakery at Bellshill, Lanarkshire, and its distribution depot in Aberdeen.
