AO opens new depot in Bracknell

AO has opened its 20th depot in Bracknell this month at the Sterling Centre on Eastern Road. 

The 20,000 sq ft site has created seven onsite roles and the group is also looking to hire people for its delivery driver team. 

This is the group’s third depot to open its doors in recent months, following expansion into Kent and Yorkshire, it comes as AO recently reported an increase in demand due to more customers shopping online because of Covid-19.

David Ashwell, MD of AO Logistics, said: “It’s fantastic that we’ve reached the milestone of 20 depots after opening three new sites in quick succession. The rapid expansion of AO Logistics is really a testament to the hard work of our people and we’re proud of how much we’ve grown in the past six months.

“The eases of shopping online for appliances has really stuck with customers and by owning our own logistics network, we’ve been in the best position to meet this increased demand. The new depot is in an ideal location to support our growth as a business.”

He added: “We’ll be able to serve our customers in Berkshire even better than before and it means we’re securing the best infrastructure for the future.”
