US Health and Fitness Giant, Bodybuilding.com, chooses Dunstable to launch UK Fulfilment Centre

Monday, 27 April 2015

The world’s most visited health and fitness site - Bodybuilding.com – is set to revolutionise the European market with the opening of its brand new fulfilment centre in Dunstable, Central Bedfordshire. The UK centre will allow customers in the UK and Europe to enjoy the same first class customer service that North American customers receive.
The UK distribution centre will breathe new life into the Dunstable area and money into the local economy. Opening a distribution centre in the UK  has long been a dream of Ryan De Luca’s. He said "Dunstable is an ideal place for us being between the north and London with easy access to the M1. We have found and are still finding fantastic local work force who are greatly contributing to making the UK distribution centre a huge success.”
Bodybuilding.com is home to thousands of first class articles and fitness tutorials from some of the world’s top athletes and trainers which users can download and use absolutely free. In the United States, Bodybuilding.com is part of an elite group of retailers that have been awarded the Bizrate Circle of Excellence Platinum Award. Customers in the UK will now receive the same level of service experienced by US customers and 98% of shipments will deliver next day (next day delivery available 7 days a week)
Bodybuilding.com CEO, Ryan DeLuca, said: “Our goal is to deliver the best customer experience possible and this fulfilment centre will be able to help us to do just that.”
Bedfordshire’s Deputy Lieutenant Cynthia Gresham, who officially opened the new fulfilment centre with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, said: “I am very passionate about Dunstable and all the town has to offer so I am thrilled that Bodybuilding.com shares the same vision. I enjoyed taking a tour of their facility and learning about this exciting, thriving business. Ryan’s entrepreneurial story is quite remarkable and his excitement in choosing Dunstable as the European base for his company really shone through.”
Jason Longhurst, Central Bedfordshire Council Regeneration and Business Director, said: “Dunstable is a town enjoying a period of growth and rejuvenation as many of the council’s long term projects are coming to fruition. Developments such as improved infrastructure have been designed to attract the very best companies into the area and Bodybuilding.com, with its world-renowned reputation, certainly fits that bill. Their new fulfilment centre has also brought employment to the area; all of which will help showcase to an international audience why Central Bedfordshire is such a great place to live and work.”
