Arvato has strategically expanded its operations in the United Kingdom with the acquisition of Avon’s warehouse and office space in Corby, East Midlands. This transaction is in line with Arvato’s global growth strategy, focusing on expanding its global presence and enhancing the existing partnership with Avon. The acquisition includes warehousing and transport management responsibilities for Avon’s UK business and inherits 81 employees. Managing Director UK at Arvato, Tobias Uthmann, expressed the company’s intentions to further invest in technology and digitalization to future-proof the site. General Manager for Avon’s UK business, Alex Long, reassured that service for Avon representatives and customers would continue as usual following this sale, which is anticipated to be a beneficial and long-standing investment for the Corby location. Arvato’s UK presence is thereby strengthened with this addition, marking its fourth location in the country, alongside its Hams Hall, Kings Norton, and East Midlands Gateway logistics centers.
