Tharsus’s Partnership Extension With Ocado Group


Womble Bond Dickinson has advised Tharsus on the deal.

Tharsus extended its long-standing partnership with online grocery giant Ocado Group.

Based in Northumberland, Tharsus has been working with Ocado Group for seven years, making the robots which the firm uses to pick groceries for delivery in its fulfilment centres. The extension of its partnership will see the firms continue working together until 2024 and the deal will also result in a multimillion-pound investment at the firm’s Blyth sites, creating and safeguarding around 100 jobs in the North East and across the UK.

A multidisciplinary team of lawyers from WBD advised on the deal, which was led by Newcastle-based partners Robert Phillips (Picture) and Peter Snaith. The firm provided key commercial expertise.
