Toolstation To Create Over 150 New Jobs In Manchester

Toolstation has opened a new distribution centre in Middleton which will create up to 150 new full or part time jobs in the Manchester area.

The company, owned by the Travis Perkins Group, sells trade tools, accessories and hardware products both online and direct to the construction industry.

Jobs on offer at the new Toolstation facility in the North West town include vacancies for warehouse operatives and some managerial positions.

By the end of this year, the new Middleton facility on the Stakehill Industrial Estate could be distributing to almost 50 Toolstation outlets but has the potential to service around 150 outlets in the north of England and across Scotland.

The Middleton distribution centre is Toolstation’s fourth in the United Kingdom and is part of wider national expansion plans which will see the firm open 40 new outlets across the country this year, creating a further 500 full and part time vacancies.

Toolstation already boasts 320 branches but the expansion throughout 2018 will see them increase their outlets by more than 12 per cent to reach 360 by the end of this year. In the future, Toolstation has plans to hit the 500 branch milestone within the next few years.

Speaking at the opening of the new facility in Greater Manchester, James Mackenzie, managing director of Toolstation, said: “We're delighted to open our new Distribution Centre in Middleton and what it means for the growth of Toolstation - job creation for local people, further enhanced service for our customers and successful strategic growth for our business.”

“The location is excellent in terms of quickening our ability to get the right products to our customers at the right time, and in strengthening our UK footprint. My thanks and congratulations go to all our staff and everyone involved who have worked hard to make this opening a success,” added Mr Mackenzie.
