Great Bear to move into flagship DC

Construction work has been completed on Great Bear’s 480,000 sq ft distribution centre at Markham Vale which is due to open later this year.

gbThe facility, which is the largest at the site, will become the 3PL’s flagship distribution centre in the UK.

“We are extremely pleased with how quickly Henry Boot Developments and Bowmer & Kirkland have been able to deliver our new 480,000 sq ft distribution facility at Markham Vale,” said CEO Glenn Lindfield.

“The bespoke unit will add a significant amount of additional capacity to the Great Bear network and with the immediate access to the UK motorway system, Markham Vale will provide us with an advantage to servicing our clients up and down the country.”

Great Bear has taken a 15-year lease on the site.
