Eight Yeovil warehouses to merge into distribution hub

Eight Somerset warehouses will be combined into a single £30m distribution hub for helicopter business Leonardo.

New site in Yeovil developed by Graftongate and built by GMI Construction will total 210,000 sq ft.

Leonardo’s logistics partner, Kuehne + Nagel, will operate the new facility under a ten-year logistics contract.

The state-of-the-art facility which is expected to be complete by late 2022 will support Leonardo’s global fleet of helicopters through the storage of components and tooling.

Eco initiatives include ‘built in’ to include rainwater harvesting tanks for brown water services, full LED lighting throughout the facility and a heat recovery system in the main warehouse, which will be complemented by a modern office temperature control system. In addition, there will be a bank of electrical vehicle charging points
