Primary Connect, the supply chain part of the Woolworths Group, has signed an agreement with BevChain, slated to support more than 150 jobs.

As part of the new partnership, BevChain (owned by Linfox) will manage beverage warehousing from a new liquor distribution centre in Kemps Creek NSW.

This distribution centre, which occupies a 35,000 square metre site, will service more than 400 Dan Murphy’s and BWS outlets across NSW.

BevChain’s President, Misha Shliapnikoff said: “We are excited about this new agreement with our valued customer, which speaks to the reputation of trust earned by BevChain to help Woolworths Group grow stronger with smarter supply chain solutions.”

“BevChain’s beverage expertise, scale and agility helps position our customers for future growth while remaining flexible enough to respond to shifts in demand,” Shliapnikoff continued.

Shliapnikoff’s sentiments were echoed by Chris Brooks, the Director of Transport and Primary Connect for Woolworths Group.

“This new development at Kemps Creek is another exciting step in our Primary Connect journey to become Australia and New Zealand’s next-generation supply chain.

“We look forward to the service improvements we’ll see for Endeavour Group, and we’re pleased to strengthen our partnership with BevChain through this development,” Brooks concluded.

An additional 150 roles will be created to support the partnership between BevChain and Woolworths, including occupations in leadership, specialist roles and frontline warehouse staff.

Construction at the site is underway, with the distribution centre slated to be operational by early 2023. Roles will be advertised in the next few weeks.
