Cooper expands into Swindon
Cooper Tire Europe has opened a new 211,000-square-foot UK warehouse in Swindon, which has the capacity to store 400,000 tyres.
Tyres from both brands – Cooper Tires and Avon Tyres – will be stored at the Spectrum Building, which was used in the 1983 James Bond film, a View to a Kill.
The Melksham-based tyre manufacturer not only has a newer warehouse with greater capacity, but by moving its warehouse location from Melksham to Swindon, it has also created 17 new jobs in the area, while increasing speed of delivery as a result of close proximity to the M4.
Cooper Tire Europe Marketing communications manager, Sarah McRoberts, said, ‘With this new warehouse in Swindon we are able to better service our UK customers’ requirements, and increase stock levels across the full Cooper and Avon winter and summer product ranges. We now have 30 staff based in Swindon, and are delighted to have had new employees joining the Cooper family as a result of our expanded warehouse facilities.’
