A supplier of coffee machines has become the second tenant for Multiply Logistics North the joint venture between Harworth and the Lancashire County Pension Fund.
The company, rijo42, is taking a 20,000 sq ft unit being built as part of Multiply’s second phase on a 15 year lease at £7.25 psf.
The Multiply scheme will deliver ten units totalling 564,000 sq ft over the next two years. Phase 2 of the development is currently being built owing to the continued lack of good quality new commercial space in the North West – a further six units of between 18,073 sq ft and 149,198 sq ft, including rijo42’s intended unit.
Sean Griffin, director of rijo42, said: “The decision to move was simple; the site perfectly reflects our key vision to remain the largest independent coffee company in the UK and supports our long term eco-strategy. Our new state-of-the-art facility will enable us to deliver unparalleled first class customer service and provide our well-established team with a truly unique and inspiring place to work.”
B8 Real Estate and Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) acted as joint agents for Harworth on the transaction.
