Heating, cooling and ventilation firm opens 240,000 sq ft Daventry warehouse

Daikin, which works in the heating, cooling and ventilation industry, has opened its new Midlands warehouse in Daventry, with its logistics partner GXO.

Located in the heart of the UK logistics “golden triangle” in the Midlands, Daikin, together with GXO, have jointly invested over £4 million to consolidate their operations into one facility.

The move provides a future-ready fit out of a 240,000-square-foot warehouse that will exclusively serve Daikin in the UK for all products and spares. The full transition from the current operation to the new warehouse will happen during the course of this year, providing over 75 new jobs for the local community.

Sherin Hammad, Head of Operations at Daikin UK, said: “The opening of our new warehouse in Daventry is a great leap forward for Daikin in our ability to meet our customers’ needs and reduce the environmental impact when storing and delivering units and spares. The market for heat pumps and commercial HVAC products is growing fast, and as such, we must have the capability to keep up with this.”

“We’re delighted to support Daikin’s growth in the UK,said Clare Davies, Managing Director of GXO Direct. “Our flexible, scalable GXO Direct shared warehousing helped support Daikin’s growth to the stage where they are ready to move to their own warehouse solution.

“This new dedicated facility provides them with the flexibility and space they need to continue their business growth. GXO Direct shared warehousing is particularly suited to helping companies, including those in the heating and ventilation sector, grow their operations in an efficient manner.”

The Daventry warehouse provides Daikin the ability to scale up its operations, moving from several GXO Direct shared user warehouse sites, into one consolidated site. This relocation will support Daikin’s growth for many years to come.
