Computer 2000, the UK arm of Tech Data, has expanded the capacity of its warehouse facility in Leicestershire by 30 per cent.

The distributor opened the 120,000 square-foot expansion today to meet the needs of its expanding customer-base in the UK and Ireland.

Including the extension, the Magna Park facility is now 500,000 square foot and has the capacity to pack and ship more than 5,000 orders and 100,000 items daily.

Computer 2000 group marketing director Andy Dow said: “We have had a good year in terms of the overall growth of our business. We are doing more business with more resellers more often. We have added 1,700 new customers over the past 12 months, taking the total number of businesses we serve in the UK to over 13,000, and provided £1.2 billion of credit to the channel.

“We have clear aims and ambitions moving forward. The extended warehouse will enable us to execute on those plans and keep on delivering the consistently high levels of service all our customers rightly expect.”
