Foodstuffs to open new distribution centre

Foodstuffs North Island is opening a brand-new distribution centre in Mangere, Auckland. The new project will see closure of the current Rotorua branch.

The move of this primary distribution centre will see an exciting new complex take over from its current long term home in Mount Roskill. The new complex is to be built at The Landing Business Park near Auckland Airport.

Construction is due to start on the large site this year, with a completion date set around 2020.

Foodstuffs, who owns Pak'nSave, New World, Four Square, Liquorland, Shoprite, Write Price, Gilmours, Henry's Beer Wines & Spirits and the new Fresh Collective, says the 65,000m2 distribution centre and five Greenstar rated office complex will be the heart of the company.

Chief executive Chris Quin, says Foodstuffs North Island has been at its current site for 53 years and is rapidly outgrowing that space.

 “We’ve been an important part of New Zealanders’ lives and communities for nearly 100 years and we plan on being around for many years to come. To do this we need better facilities to deliver what our customers at PAK'nSAVE, New World, Four Square, Gilmours and Liquorland and Fresh Collective need from us for the future.  We’re planning significant future growth across the business and our success depends on being nimble, efficient and continuing to attract the best talent, who work in an agile and collaborative way.”

The move will mean shutting Foodstuffs Rotorua's distribution centre on Fairy Springs Rd in Mangakakahi. Foodstuffs plans to work with the 51 employees to offer them different opportunities within the company.

It’s also proposed to consolidate three Foodstuffs facilities in Auckland into one best-in-class complex.  The Co-op will continue to operate two distribution centres and a support centre in Palmerston North and a support centre in Wellington.

Foodstuffs North Island has yet to decide the future of its Roma Road site and will be working closely with a number of stakeholders, including local government, to determine the best use of the land.

Quin says, “Right now, it’s about continuing to deliver for customers every day. We’ll remain at our legendary home in Mt Roskill until the new site is ready in 2020 and then we’ll be packing up and moving out to a bright, new, expansive future at The Landing.”
