Rapidly growing eCommerce fulfilment company Selazar has announced a further expansion of its operations, with the opening of a new hi-tech warehouse in Hellaby, Yorkshire. The new warehouse, operated in partnership with business processing outsourcing experts Parseq, will see the UK-based fulfilment company increase its reach across the north of the UK.
The new Hellaby warehouse covers 2,427 square metres and can facilitate 6527 pallet spaces. Its flexible space meets the ever-increasing needs of Selazar, and is designed for high-speed, high-volume operations to create the UK’s most accurate fulfilment service. This new UK warehouse opening is part of a phased expansion in the UK, Europe, the US and Latin America, following a £20 million growth investment in Selazar in November 2021.
Selazar, which was founded in Belfast and also has offices in London and Leicestershire, has been on a solid growth trajectory since its launch in 2018. The company has developed a highly innovative proprietary eCommerce fulfilment platform and primarily services medium-sized and bespoke retailers throughout the UK. According to Statistica, the UK has the most advanced eCommerce market in Europe and is expected to have nearly 60 million e-commerce users this year. This new warehouse will service the ongoing eCommerce growth in the UK.
Commenting on the opening of the new warehouse, Jack Williams, CEO of Selazar said:
“Our new Hellaby warehouse will ensure that Selazar can provide even greater levels of support to medium-sized and bespoke eCommerce retailers across the UK. It also marks the latest phase in our UK and international expansion, with further warehouses to be added in the near future. Up to 50 local jobs could be created as a result of this latest warehouse opening. We’re very pleased to be partnering with Parseq in this venture.”
Referring to Selazar’s fulfilment services at the Hellaby warehouse, luxury footwear brand Macian’s founder and CEO, Silvia Olcese said:
‘With Selazar, we’re able to put customer experience at the heart of our business from the outset. The new Hellaby site supports our expansion plans and is an exciting opportunity for our company.”
