Wincanton snaps up Staffordshire warehouse

Wincanton has taken an 85,000 sq ft warehouse at Hortons’ Estate’s Marchington Industrial Estate in Staffordshire.

Ian Henderson from Wincanton said: “The new facility complements our existing portfolio of warehousing and storage sites around the UK and gives us additional operational capacity in the Midlands to service new and existing contracts in the region.” 

Wincanton has some 19.4 million sq ft of warehousing space and storage at 200 sites across the UK.

Richard Meering, senior director and head of CBRE’s industrial agency team in Birmingham, said: “With availability of good quality logistics stock in short supply, Marchington Industrial Estate is also one of only a handful of sites in the Midlands that can offer large ready-to-occupy units.”

Marchington Industrial Estate, which was acquired by Hortons’ Estate in April, comprises more than 1.3 million sq ft of industrial and warehousing space in 34 buildings, ranging from 300 sq ft to 300,000 sq ft. Units are available on flexible and competitive terms with immediate occupation available for periods from six weeks.
Richard Norgrove, property director at Hortons’ Estate, said: “We are pleased to welcome Wincanton to the site so soon after acquiring it.  We have a further 100,000 sq ft under offer at present with a strategy to increase occupation on the site through active management and working with occupiers and their requirements and offering flexible and competitive terms.”

Letting agents for the site are CBRE, GVA and Kingston’s.
