Canmoor is set to welcome the Steder Group as the latest new occupier at Westway Park in Renfrew, Scotland.
The global logistics service provider has signed up for 60,000ft2 of logistics space at the newly refurbished Block D on a 10-year lease.
The Scottish & Dutch-owned company, which is headquartered in Hillington, Glasgow and in Rotterdam in Holland, is relocating its UK Warehousing & Logistics Services side of the business to Renfrew from Hillington. The new unit will be used for storage and distribution functions, while the main freight forwarding, customs brokerage, sales, marketing and administration will remain at its Hillington HQ.
Steder Group is set up to handle any logistics challenge and can offer a complete range of logistic services within a broad, worldwide network. In Scotland, this includes forwarding, air cargo, with services, including handling customs documentation for a global customer base. The new facility in Renfrew is part of the UK arm of the business, which along with its HQ in Hillington also has bases in Aberdeen, Queenslie & Dunfermline.
“Quality space, connectivity and site security were the prime drivers for our move to Westway,” commented Steve Logan, Managing Director of Steder Group said. “Our goal is to be the one of the best complete logistics service providers in Scotland and this new facility will enable us to continue to deliver high quality and customised service to our customer base and partners, both in the UK and globally.
Westway is a key strategic industrial and distribution location that offers excellent connectivity to the whole of Central Scotland, with Junction 27 of the M8 only three minutes’ drive away. It is located in the heart of the Glasgow Airport Investment area, which is one of the key City Deal projects that will benefit from £39.1 million of inward investment over the next 10 years. This will deliver significant infrastructure investment to the area including a new two-lane bridge over the White Cart, directly linking Westway with the investment area and airport, which is scheduled to open later this year.
Westway also benefits from having its own private dock facility on the White Cart Water which accesses the River Clyde. This provides an alternative shipping solution particularly for large products that are unsuitable for transport by road.
Canmoor’s joint agents are JLL and Colliers, with the park being managed by Knight Frank.
