382,000 sq ft Stoke shed for Marks & Spencer

Marks & Spencer has taken a 382,000 sq ft warehouse at ProLogis Park Stoke.

Jason Keegan, head of general merchandise logistics at Marks & Spencer, said: “Our relocation to a new site in Stoke-on-Trent will give us even greater flexibility and efficiency in our supply chain operations. Our ongoing relationship with ProLogis enabled us to move quickly when the opportunity became available and we look forward to working with the company in Stoke-on-Trent.”

ProLogis Park Stoke is located on Campbell Road about one hour from the Birmingham city centre and has easy access to the A500 dual carriageway from the M6 motorway at Junction 15.

Andrew Griffiths, UK managing director for ProLogis said: “This transaction is proof of ProLogis’ ability to provide our customers, such as Marks & Spencer, with market-leading services both in the availability of our buildings and land, and in the quality of our product.”

Marks & Spencer is scheduled to take occupancy of a one million square foot distribution facility late in 2010 that ProLogis is in the process of constructing at Bradford.

GVA Grimley, Lamonts and North Rae Sanders acted for ProLogis; Cushman & Wakefield advised Marks & Spencer.
