Online fashion retailer Asos has formally opened a new 437,000 sq ft state-of-the-art fulfilment centre in Lichfield, Staffordshire.

Opened with Michael Fabricant, Conservative MP for Lichfield, and Doug Pullen, Conservative Leader of Lichfield District Council, the facility at Fradley Park will employ 2,000 people over the next three years and has thus far recruited more than 700 people.

The £90 million fulfilment centre will serve customers in the UK, as well as in more than 150 countries globally.

Asos expects to ship more than 30 million units in the site’s first year, and up to 4.5 million units per week once the site is fully operational.

Asos said it will enable it to meet increasing customer demand and support its ambitions of reaching £7 billion of annual revenue within the next three to four years.

Asos chief operating officer Mat Dunn said: “We are thrilled to be celebrating the opening of our brand-new warehouse in Lichfield, which will support our ambitious international growth plans and bring a significant number of jobs to the area.

“Our choice of Lichfield reflects the skills and talent it has to offer and we’re looking forward to becoming part of the local community in the years ahead.”

Michael Fabricant, MP for Lichfield added: “Lichfield District is ideal as a location for ASOS’ new global warehouse as it sits in the middle of the country and is well connected to our road system. But Lichfield is much more than that. It has a highly educated, well-motivated and skilled workforce so the District has attracted many hi-tech industries.”
