Visit to the Estée Lauder Companies UK & Ireland High-Tech Distribution Centre

I was taken on a tour around the prestige beauty company’s high-tech distribution centre in Kite’s Croft, Fareham.

Established in the UK in 1960, The Estée Lauder Companies is the UK’s number one prestige beauty company with over 25 brands.

I spent time talking to some of the 500 employees, including apprenticeships, at Kite’s Croft to learn how the operation works leading up to one of their busiest times of year.

On the tour, I visited the Company’s award-winning Customer Contact Centre, the Online Design Studio and the Distribution Centre, where I learnt how to prepare, pack and bow a Jo Malone London gift box.

It was fantastic to see The Estée Lauder Companies UK & Ireland’s distribution facility, Digital Design Studio and Customer Contact Centre in action.

I am so proud to have such a hive of creativity and innovation in Fareham and I very much enjoyed meeting a number of people from across the business.

Dan Mahony, Vice President, Supply Chain, at The Estée Lauder Companies, said "we are delighted to show Suella around our Kite’s Croft Distribution Centre.Our colleagues are working around the clock to ensure that we continue to deliver High Touch service to all our consumers in the run up to Christmas at this very busy time of year."
