Attacq Limited has announced that Australian retail Group, Cotton On, will build its new South African campus within Waterfall’s Logistics Hub.

One of Australia’s largest global fashion brands, Cotton On has been operating in South Africa since 2014, boasting the largest store fleet outside of Australia with over 160 stores nationwide as well as an online retail platform.

As part of the group’s expansion into the region, Cotton On will establish a 21 000m2 purpose-built campus to serve as its Southern Africa distribution and operations headquarters. The campus will bring multiple divisions together into one large corporate headquarters and this move is aimed at improving efficiencies and optimizing supply chain through enhancing workflow processes between teams.

“The move to Waterfall is in line with our broader Africa strategy to build brand resonance and resilience within the South African marketplace. By bringing our people together all under one roof, we will be able to respond to our customers’ needs more efficiently, while at the same time providing a modern and collaborative work environment for our employees” comments Natalie Wills, Cotton On Group Country Manager.

“Attacq is committed to creating community-driven precincts that deliver inclusive, mixed-use environments. We are extremely excited about Cotton On’s move to the precinct and the broader implications for Waterfall. Waterfall Logistics Hub continues to attract premium brands due to its combination of visibility and accessibility along national logistics routes, as well as its proximity to Waterfall’s retail and lifestyle offerings,” concludes Giles Pendleton, Chief Development Officer at Attacq.
