Unipart Technology Logistics (UTL) moved to Nuneaton from Baginton in July 2006.
The move provided UTL a platform for future business development and allowed them to design and build an end-to-end logistics facility dedicated to the needs of their customers.
Previously operating out of multiple sites in the Midlands, the move to Nuneaton enabled UTL to accelerate the delivery of growth plans whilst at the same time consolidating their operations and developing leaner ways of working.
Remaining in the Warwickshire region has enabled a convenient migration of employees from the previous site and has also attracted local skilled workers. Headcount has more than doubled since 2006 with a current workforce of over 1100 people.
The set up and development of the site in Nuneaton has led to interest from both inside the Unipart business and externally, with the operation widely considered ‘best in class’ in terms of fully integrated ‘forward and reverse’ logistics.
The bespoke design of the site, provides Unipart employees the opportunity to fully embrace and apply the tools and techniques of the Unipart Way – a way of working that enables the company to continuously improve and deliver the greatest customer experience possible.
