Phoenix, the UK IT services company, has opened a brand new, state-of-the-art Configuration & Distribution centre in Farnborough, Hampshire. The centre, which represents an investment by Phoenix of approximately £½ million, will create 20 new jobs in the area. This facility adds to existing capabilities in Northampton.
The 15,000 sq. ft. warehouse unit combines both storage and staging areas and will enhance Phoenix’s Professional Services division’s logistics support capabilities around its clients’ IT installations. By expanding its regional network of distribution centres, Phoenix can provide its clients with quick and efficient delivery of required IT hardware, wherever their location.
This centre takes Phoenix’s total storage and staging capacity to over 30,000 sq. ft. with Northampton representing 15,000 sq. ft. respectively. The building is protected by around-the-clock security and offers 1000 pallet locations and 120 metres of work bench space among many other features.
Phoenix’s Professional Services team provides partners and clients with the highest standard of delivery of IT projects. The team’s role can vary from simply providing deployment capability, right through to undertaking a full infrastructure refresh.
Mark Ramsden, Head of Professional Services at Phoenix, said: “Opening this centre means that we can provide even more flexibility to our customers in supporting complex rollouts of their IT projects. We understand that being agile is essential to our clients and we are delighted that our investment in this facility enables us to deliver that.”
