Specsavers has inaugurated a new manufacturing and distribution center in Kidderminster in Worcestershire. England, on the site of Stourpoint Five. The new facility employs 400 people, while 200 more jobs are expected to be created over the next five years. Construction on the site was completed in November last year after 11 months of work. The facility has solar and thermal power energy and features ergonomic work stations, a self-harvesting water farm, two canteens and a games area. Also in Kidderminster, Specsavers has its Rx lens manufacturing lab Vision Labs. Other production and distribution centers in the Specsavers group include NLRX/Hi-Spec Lenses in Kettering, Northamptonshire and Airways Optical in Eastleigh, Hampshire.
