Logistics firm Owens creating 80 jobs at huge new distribution centre in Cardiff

Transport and warehousing firm Owens Group is creating 80 jobs at a new distribution centre in Cardiff.

The Llanelli-based family-owned firm has invested in a 95,000 sq ft facility at the Port of Cardiff. It has struck a long-term lease deal for the space with the owner of the port, Associated British Ports.

Ian Owen, managing director, Owens Group, said: “This is another exciting development during our 50th years of business. This new super site is ideally located at the Port of Cardiff and will assist long-term deals agreed with key blue chip customers, further securing and enhancing our company brand and customer service offering.”

Helen Thomas, ABP head of property, Wales and short aea orts, said: “We are delighted to have completed one of the largest industrial lettings deals in Cardiff over the past 12 months within such a swift timeframe and look forward to supporting Owens Group’s business growth going forward.

“ABP is known as the leading ports group in the UK with a network of 21 ports across Britain but we are more than this – we also deliver commercial property solutions for manufacturers and supply chain businesses locally, nationally and globally.”
