Logistics Development Will Create Up To 600 New Jobs In Bolton

Panattoni, the biggest developer of logistics properties in Europe, has started work on a facility in the North West which will create around 600 new full or part time jobs in Bolton.

The new logistics site will cover over 30,000 square metres and Panattoni has already signed up the first tennant at the facility, namely the UK delivery firm Hermes.

The development, which will be called Panattoni Park Bolton, is to be situated close to Junction 6 of the M61 motorway and hundreds of North West jobs will be created once the logistics facility is up and running.

Vacancies to be advertised at Panattoni Park Bolton are expected to include warehouse jobs, admin positions and many other roles.

The site is expected to be fully functional as early as June this year and we will bring you further details on the vacancies as and when information is released.

Acknowledging his company’s future at the North West facility, Hermes’ chief operating officer, Carl Lyon, said: “This new site represents another key growth milestone for us, and the size and scale of our new Bolton depot will enable us to continue to process record levels of parcels for our clients, both large and small.”

“More importantly, we’re very pleased to be able to create additional jobs in the region at this time,” added Mr Lyon.

The director of development for Panattoni, Dan Burn, also commented, saying: “We are delighted to be working with Hermes on its new flagship depot in the region as well as bringing forward such an exciting new speculative opportunity, which is the only development of its size and scale currently under construction in Greater Manchester.”

“2020 was a record year for the logistics sector and we are confident that with a paucity of supply across the North West and with very limited speculative development coming forward, the scheme will be perfectly positioned to capitalise on this demand,” added Mr Burn.
