The business will be located on the A33 on the outskirts of Basingstoke, close to the M3. From this new location DE South will be in a position to offer a twice a day delivery service to its customers across the South of England. The new units officially opened at the beginning of June 2015, with and will be fully operational by the end of August.

The opening of the new operation is another significant step forward for the Group, and will provide the platform for further business expansion throughout the region. The depot has been opened and will be run by General Manager Edwina Heffendon.

Speaking on the opening of the new business Edwina commented; “We have seen exceptional growth in our business over the past few years. We will continue to provide our customers with the highest levels of service, delivered by local people, and with the flexibility to meet individual customer needs. The investment we have made in our new facility will put us in a position to offer our service to more community pharmacists throughout the South. The additional capacity available at the new depot will also allow us to continue the process of improving our service to our loyal existing customers. We have a great team, bags of experience and an enthusiasm and commitment to customer service that will enable us to deliver the highest levels of service for our customers.”
