Aldi to build £75M UK Distribution Centre Creating 400 Jobs

Published 10th Dec 2019

In our latest Retail Blog, we look at Aldi’s plans to build a brand new distribution centre in Bedford. This centre will supply the German discount supermarket chain’s expanding UK network, it said on Monday. The company has designated more than 75 million pounds to build the centre on a site covering an area equivalent to 20 football pitches, creating an incredible 400 jobs.

Aldi has recently forced market leaders such as Tesco and Sainsbury’s to cut prices and is already the UK’s fifth-biggest supermarket chain, Aldi aims to lift the number of its UK stores to 1,000, from 726, by the year 2022.

“More than half of all UK households now regularly shop with us and many more prospective customers tell us they would switch supermarkets if there was an Aldi nearby,” said Matthew Barnes, chief executive of Aldi UK and Ireland.

“This gives us the confidence to continue investing in our operations and infrastructure.”
