Catch.com.au will expand its distribution network outside of Victoria with a new fulfilment centre at Moorebank in south-west Sydney scheduled to open in Q1 2022.
The site, which measures 36,000 square metres, will be the third fulfilment centre for the online retailer and the first outside Victoria. The project will provide 120 jobs between construction and operation.
Catch.com.au managing director, Pete Sauerborn said that the announcement would benefit customers across Australia, particularly in Queensland and New South Wales, with an even greater product offering and improved delivery times.

The Sydney fulfilment centre will allow us to serve customers more quickly and efficiently, particularly in New South Wales and Queensland.”
The facility will advance Catch’s commitment to innovation and automation in fulfilment, providing high-value advanced manufacturing, robotics and intelligent systems jobs in New South Wales.
“The Moorebank fulfilment centre will be our most technologically sophisticated centre to date,” Sauerborn added.
“We are thrilled to be able to create high-tech jobs of the future while building, operating and maintaining the state-of-the-art facility that will enable Australian shoppers to receive their purchases more efficiently, reliably and quickly than ever before.”
