Global parcel delivery giants DPD move into Dunsbury Park
Monday September 2nd, 2019
International delivery service DPD is the newest tenant of Portsmouth City Council’s business development Dunsbury Park – and is set to create 50 jobs.
DPD’s new warehouse will help the UK’s leading parcel delivery company to increase efficiency and expand its operations on the south coast.
DPD general manager Louise Ferguson said: “Dunsbury Park is a great location for us and forms part of our ongoing investment programme to expand our network to keep up with demand for our services. This new depot will increase our capacity in the area and support our existing depots in the region to ensure we continue to maintain the high level of service our customers have come to expect.”
DPD will start operations next month when they will join global clothing retailer Fat Face and Volkswagen specialists Breeze Motor Group at the fully serviced 45 acre site.
Council leader Cllr Gerald Vernon-Jackson said: “Dunsbury’s all about generating rental income for our services from the land we own in Havant and boosting jobs and the local economy. Welcoming another prestigious brand like DPD shows that our plans are moving forward in the right direction.”
Dunsbury offers manufacturing, industrial, distribution and office units up to 200,000 sq ft in a prime employment location with a modern business park feel which retains the inherent natural character of the surrounding woodland.
Landowners and developers Portsmouth City Council have planning permission to develop 665,000 sq ft and the wider site also has provision for hotel and conference facilities totalling 60,000 sq ft.
The council was represented in the transaction by Lambert Smith Hampton.
