THE international retailer set to move into a new business park has been revealed.

FatFace, the outdoor lifestyle clothing brand, which is based in Havant, will move its distribution centre to Dunsbury Hill Farm, on the border of Purbrook and Leigh Park, if negotiations with Portsmouth City Council go to plan.

If the planning application is successful the company will have 120,000 sq ft to support the business’ growth.

Simon Ratcliffe, infrastructure director at FatFace, said: ‘For some time we have been exploring options to expand our distribution facilities in order to support the company’s ambitious growth plans.

‘Having considered a number of locations across the UK, we have decided to maintain our commitment to the Havant region.

The new site will support our expansion plans whilst allowing us to better serve our customer base. We also look forward to continuing our support for local employment in the Havant area where our excellent staff, which now total 300 people in both Head Office and our existing distribution facilities, continue to drive this business forward.’

FatFace will retain its existing Head Office site at Ridgway in Havant.
