Airline catering giant checks in at Icon Manchester Airport

Airline catering company Alpha LSG has taken a 102,500 sq ft warehouse unit at the Icon Manchester Airport development.

Alpha LSG provides in-flight catering, onboard retail and logistics services to more than 80 of the industry’s biggest operators. The new development will be home to Alpha LSG’s bonded warehouse and is almost double the size of its existing facility at Manchester Airport.

Chief executive Alex Forbes said: “This new building is a significant investment in our future in Manchester and beyond. We see this as an opportunity to launch lots of new improved initiatives across our entire network such as continued environmental agenda, the reduction in single use plastics, agile working, wellbeing in the workplace and interactive communications to name but a few.”

Icon Industrial is a joint venture by Stoford Developments and TPG Real Estate.  Stoford joint managing director Dan Gallagher said: “We are delighted to announce an occupier for Unit 4 of Icon Manchester Airport, which was secured before work has even begun on the development. Alpha LSG is the latest in a strong list of occupiers to have chosen this exciting scheme as a key strategic location for its future business growth and we look forward to delivering the facility.”
