United Kingdom-based Kleeneze is consolidating logistics, fulfillment and distribution in a new 100,000-square-foot facility.
The seller of household and beauty products was acquired in 2015 by direct-to-consumer firm JRJR Networks, but up to now logistics had been contracted out to the former owner. Bringing the operation in house will enable Kleeneze to make a significant leap in development, said JRJR Networks Founder and Vice Chairman John Rochon Jr.
Kleeneze’s new facility is located in Rochdale, in the Greater Manchester area of northern England. The company, which has operated in the U.K. for nearly a century, is financing the investment through a $1.5 million deal with the Greater Manchester Combined Authority. The logistics hub is expected to bring more than 100 new jobs to Rochdale.
“We are very pleased to have the opportunity to make this contribution to the local economy and to offer additional employment support in the region,” said Michael Khatkar, Kleeneze Managing Director. “This new facility should enable us to drive our business further in 2017, expanding into new markets and enabling more people to engage in personal economic development.”
Kleeneze is one of 10 direct selling businesses operating independently under the JRJR Networks umbrella. Combined, these brands are sold through more than 70,000 independent distributors around the world. Kleeneze has expanded into markets across Europe, in addition to Great Britain.
