The UK’s leading retailer Tesco has confirmed today that 550 new jobs are set to be created with the construction of a new distribution centre (DC) in north London.

Gazeley, global provider of sustainable logistics, has beaten competition to seal the deal to build the new e-commerce warehouse for the retail giant.

The deal is thought to be worth around £20 million and will create 152,000 sq ft building on the 15.5 acre site at G Park in Enfield.

Nigel Godfrey, Senior Vice President of UK Operations at Gazeley, said: “We have significant experience in delivering bespoke solutions for our customers. Our partnership approach means we are able to deliver this strategic site for Tesco in a short timescale to the highest quality specification.

“E-commerce developments are an increasing requirement for retailers and being able to deliver efficiently and effectively is vital.

“We are looking to build on this deal to deliver solutions for major companies that have urgent requirements for such facilities. The Tesco deal follows a number of recent wins including the development of G.Park Swindon and a land sale at G.Park Bedford.”

In October Gazeley started construction of a DC for fellow retailer B&Q in Swindon and a month later revealed that it will be building another centre for global logistics business DHL.

This new build is scheduled to be completed in the first quarter of 2011, with practical completion expected in 20 weeks.
