Multimillion-pound investment showcases the business’ investment into UK manufacturing for the past and future years to come.
Located in Worcester, Kohler Mira's new National Distribution Centre was officially opened by David Kohler, President and CEO of Kohler Co. and owner of Kohler Mira.
The new facility is the most advanced Kohler distribution centre globally. Having been developed by a dedicated team for over two years, the centre formed part of the business’ centenary year, and follows the opening of its Space 100 facility in Cheltenham in January.
As one of the leading UK manufacturers, and a business that has placed innovation at its core throughout its 100 year-long history, the National Distribution Centre is just another example of Kohler Mira leading the way to meet the ever-evolving needs of its customers. The centre allows the brand to process orders three times faster, and links its manufacturing sites around the UK to result in one seamless delivery.
The 150,000 sq ft building has the capacity for over 10,000 pallets, whilst offering world class automation. Having also been designed with sustainability in mind, the centre has recently been recognised with a Carbon Reduction Award by the Bathroom Manufacturers Association and also received an accreditation from BREEAM Official for its sustainability performance. To ensure associate wellbeing remains in focus, a dedicated relaxation area also ensures associates have a space to relax in throughout their working day. Built on an 11.25-acre site, there is room to grow and expand as the business, channels, and customer requirements evolve.
