Outdoor clothing firm Regatta to transfer it’s Ringaskiddy distribution centre

Outdoor clothing firm Regatta is to transfer it’s distribution centre in Ringaskiddy elsewhere within the group

60 people were employed in the centre when it opened 18 months ago and it is now due to be wound down over a six month period

In a statement issued to RedFM News Regatta says the business will run on full capacity throughout the Autumn/Winter season and they will be conducting collective and individual consultations during that time with all affected staff

Following this five to six-month period, there will be opportunities in other parts of the business for redeployment and Regatta says they will ensure that every member of staff is fully equipped and trained for employment either within the business or elsewhere.

Regatta operates over 30 stores across the country including a number of outlets here in Cork

Brian Fox MD Regatta Ireland said, “18 months ago, it was the correct decision to set up a Distribution Centre in Ireland. We are proud of our colleagues who have worked tirelessly to make it work. However, we did not anticipate the continued rate of growth that we have experienced across retail, wholesale and online. We pride ourselves on the terrific service we provide, but it has become clear that we need to transfer this function of our operation to our other logistics facilities in order to deliver the best possible customer service and ensure that all our customers continue to have access to our full and growing product ranges.”
