UKP Worldwide (UKPW), an international customs agent based in Buckinghamshire, is relocating to Westcott Venture Park as part of the company's plans for expansion.

25 Staff and UKPW's and head quarter operations will be moved to a 10,000 sq ft warehouse with offices at Unit 12 Century Court.

The business is currently operating from three separate warehouses in Wornal Park so the move to Westcott will bring UKP's operations under one roof, giving the company more room for further expansion.

UKPW CEO, Lee Bucktrout, said: “We have enjoyed significant growth and our new facility will streamline our operations and provide us with the space to expand in order to realise our full potential. 

“Westcott Venture Park is a fantastic location for our business, providing us with an exceptional working environment that is strategically located and most importantly can accommodate our ongoing growth.

“We look forward to moving to the Park and utilising the services of Westcott based businesses and being able to provide our services to other onsite businesses.”
