Discount Retail Chain Aldi Spain (German family owned) will begin works during the first half of this year to expand its logistics platform located in Masquefa (Barcelona) by more than 13,000 square meters.
This warehouse currently has an area of 29,640 meters, so after the expansion, which is expected to end in early 2022, it will have more than 45,600, as reported by the discounter today.
The works include the creation of 7,450 square meters of cold rooms and the installation of photovoltaic panels that will generate a large part of the electricity consumed on the platform and will be equipped with LED lighting.
The expansion of the Masquefa logistics warehouse has the objective of responding to the expansion of the company planned for the coming years in Catalonia and the Balearic Islands.
In fact, the discounter recently opened in Barcelona, on Tallers street, its 75th store in Catalonia, the tenth in the Catalan capital.
Catalonia is the second autonomous community with the most Aldi stores, after Andalusia, with 81, and one of the most strategic for the company.
The discount retailer currently has more than 1,600 employees in Catalonia, including store employees, logistics staff and professionals from its offices located in Sant Cugat del Vallès (Barcelona).
In the Balearic Islands, the chain has been increasing its presence in recent years, reaching 10 stores.
