SIG Distribution to open centre on former Federation Breweries site
BOSSES behind the distribution division of a construction supplies firm say they could create more North-East jobs at a new £2m depot.
SIG Distribution is opening a base on the former Newcastle Federation Breweries site in Dunston, near Gateshead, which will employ 70 workers.
Bosses say the site is its first distribution depot in the UK to serve customers from across its five businesses, which include, insulation; technical insulation; interiors; fixings; and construction accessories.
The centre will open on Monday, December 2, and the firm says it could increase its workforce.
Paul Gordon, SIG Distribution managing director, said: “This launch is a major milestone for us.
“It is the first of its kind in the UK, serving customers from each of our five businesses, and will make doing business easier for our many customers across the North-East.
“This is an area of huge potential growth for us and this centre will be crucial in helping us to secure new customers, and work more effectively with existing ones.”
