LWC Drinks has opened a new 116,000 sq ft depot in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, as part of a strategy to expand its London footprint.
This facility will be the third to service London and the Home Counties, joining the also recently opened LWC Andover and another depot in Slough. The announcement comes eight weeks after the opening of a new 105,000 sq ft site in Andover, and four months after the opening of a new site in Doncaster, South Yorkshire.
Scheduled to start trading in October, LWC Aylesbury will house what the company is calling a state-of-the-art warehouse management system that will allow for improved inventory and order accuracy, the capabilities to offer same or next day delivery, and the support of a team of highly skilled WSET-qualified account managers.

Ebrahim Mukadam, managing director for LWC Drinks commented: “I am delighted to be announcing plans to open a new depot in Aylesbury, and another significant step forward in LWC’s growth journey. London and the South East is a notoriously busy and demanding area, and an area in which we have had a footing for some time.
“However, as our customer base has grown, it is imperative that we uphold our commitment to service levels and maintain the same high standard of service our customers and partners have come to expect. This means investing in our local infrastructure and facilities, as we grow, to futureproof and protect our service level for years to come. We would never want our business successes to risk compromising our service – the foundation of our business – which is why we will always reinvest where we can, to safeguard this.
