Global cosmetics company L’Oréal has completed the £2 million construction of its new warehouse and distribution facility. Increasing the firm’s supply capacity significantly, it is a huge boost to its logistics armoury.

As well as following current best practice for design and build, the Trafford Park distribution centre is all about sustainability, as much as it is about growth for the future.

L’Oréal’s Stephan Coutelen, the firm’s Supply Chain Director for the whole of the UK, said:

“[We are] committed to reducing our environmental footprint.

“The expansion at Trafford Park reflects the importance of this.”

The new centre will help the beauty firm to expand and grow, but do so in a responsible way. As well as taking care to ensure the  warehouse flooring  warehouse flooring and racking is up to the demands of a modern facility, much care has also been invested into its sustainability.

A number of other green features have also been introduced.

A notable addition is the new LED fittings, which will drag down energy consumption hugely. It is expected that energy use will drop by 45 per cent, with operating costs also slashed.

Other initiatives on the site will see fewer greenhouse gas emissions, less water consumption and a reduction in waste.

For some time now, all of L’Oréal’s distribution centres in the UK have been powered by renewable electricity. This has already seen a reduction in emissions of about 80 per cent. The new Trafford Park facility will further enhance this, and has been certified to ISO 14001.
