Smith sets down in Longbridge

Independent builders merchant EH Smith has acquired the former MG Sports and Racing Building at the Cofton Centre from regeneration specialist St Modwen.

The 20,715 sq ft warehouse is set to open next spring to supply a wide range of building materials and services to the surrounding area. The premises will enable the Birmingham-based family firm to take on up to 20 new staff.

The deal follows the sale by St Modwen of the adjoining 157,000 sq ft former MG Rover parts distribution warehouse to PRG Europe.
