New Christchurch Distribution Centre
Here at Century Yuasa we remain focussed on supplying New Zealand with a world class range of products and brands. We have a philosophy of managing products from their creation through to their disposal in the most efficient and environmentally friendly way possible. In order to help us with this journey we have invested in a brand new purpose built facility in Christchurch.
The 914m2 facility will be able to house up to 20,000 batteries, with approximately 14,000 of these being automotive batteries. This has meant that we have been able to create job security for our staff, as well as allowing for potential growth in the future and has helped us offer our Motive Power business a proper dedicated area to build and service batteries for customers.
On top of this the facility will help improve the quality of batteries with less risk of damage, goods inward inspection, regular QA audit in line with our quality management system and professional logistic support (FIFO management, safety, compliance, inventory control) with dedicated resources.
The new site has been operational since the 10th February 2020 and will manage the distribution of Century and Yuasa products throughout the South Island. This will mean having our products land directly in Christchurch will reduce delivery time for our customers but more importantly help reduce our carbon footprint and the impact on the environment.
