Automotive logistics specialist GEFCO has opened a new hub in Speke, Merseyside. The new storage facility will result in the creation of 100 jobs, though it is not known when all these new positions will be filled. As well as the storage facility, the hub will support the supply chain operations of manufacturers in the region. The new hub is the produce of a 10 million GBP investment by the company, which was lauded as a major boost to the region's economy by the Mayor of Liverpool.
