Dr. Martens to double output on GBP2m site investment

By Hannah Abdulla

UK boot maker Dr. Martens has announced a GBP2m (US$2.6m) investment in its Northamptonshire site, a move that will allow it to almost double production to 165,000 pairs a year.

The investment will include an upgrade to its current manufacturing facilities and will also see the addition of a new visitor and heritage centre to the site, which is expected to open in spring 2020.

CEO Kenny Wilson said: “This investment demonstrates our ongoing commitment to Northampton and to upholding Dr. Martens’ distinguished brand heritage. 

“We are really proud of our history and of our roots in Northampton – the city has played a huge role in the growth of our brand and we want people to be able to experience this. Today’s investment also highlights the success of our Made in England range and its continued popularity with our customers. We can’t wait to open our new visitor centre and welcome Dr. Martens fans, both new and old, through our doors.”
