Kohler Mira officially opens new multimillion-pound National Distribution Centre

Kohler Mira has officially opened its new multimillion-pound National Distribution Centre. The facility was officially opened by David Kohler, President and CEO of Kohler Co., Kohler Mira’s owners.

Located in Worcester, 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.

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 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.

Craig Baker, Managing Director at Kohler Mira said: “Our team worked tirelessly to design this state-of-the-art facility, and it has been great to see the first orders processed during our hundredth year. With innovative technologies throughout, it has been built with customer needs in mind, and will allow us to make sure they receive the very best service for years to come.

“We are delighted to welcome David Kohler for the official opening, highlighting our continued commitment to and investment in manufacturing in the UK.”
