Nationwide courier and logistics company DX Network Services has become the first company to take a unit at Alpha Park, the major new industrial and warehouse development in Chandler’s Ford.
The company has signed a ten year lease to occupy a unit at the £20million site, which is on track to complete this month.
DX Network Services will use the new unit to service its home delivery contract with IKEA, as the logistics company continues to expand its operation in the south and add to its workforce in the area.
Cabinet Lead for Economy Cllr Derek Pretty said, “It’s great to see another national company choosing to remain in our borough. Their new unit at Alpha Park will provide jobs for local people and further contributes to the economic prosperity of the area. I am pleased to welcome them to Chandler’s Ford and wish them every success.”
DX Network Services is part of DX Group, which was established in 1975 and now employs more than 3,000 staff in operational hubs and offices around the UK.
The units at Alpha Park are designed to be suitable for general industrial, warehouse and distribution use. The park is in a highly accessible location near the M3, M27 and M25 motorways and close to Southampton Airport and Southampton Docks.
