Warrington site is just 20 minutes from Galt’s offices
Kinaxia has announced a five-year UK warehousing contract with iconic toy firm James Galt & Co. Galt has signed up for the sole use of a 9,290 m2 warehouse in Warrington at the headquarters of Mark Thompson Transport.
£500,000 is being spent to fit out the building with lighting, racking, handling equipment, CCTV and a warehouse management system.
The Warrington site is just 20 minutes from Galt’s offices and within easy reach of the motorway network due to its closeness to the M6. Galt explored numerous options when seeking a new warehouse and distribution centre, and they felt that this was the outstanding choice in terms of the quality of the people and the operation.
The contract with Galt, which has its headquarters in Cheadle, Greater Manchester, will create 20 jobs at the site. Galt’s range of toys, games, puzzles, arts and crafts and equipment such as trampolines will be distributed from Warrington to UK stockists including Amazon, Argos, Hobbycraft, John Lewis, Sainsbury’s, The Entertainer and Waitrose, as well as independent toy and gift shops.
Items will also be picked and packed for export to Europe, Japan, China, the UAE, South Korea, Australia and the US.
