Construction started on Pilkington shed

M&G Real Estate and Trebor Developments have appointed A&H Construction as main contractor for a new 325,000 sq ft industrial facility in Redditch.

Construction will start in November, with the scheme expected to be complete and ready to welcome the tenant, Pilkington Automotive, by Summer 2020. The project involves the construction of a 72,000 sq ft extension to the facility and alterations to the existing structure to create a leading edge manufacturing operation – all of which will be undertaken while Pilkington’s distribution operations continue as usual.

The development will provide high quality manufacturing national distribution facilities for automotive glass specialist Pilkington, which is relocating from its existing manufacturing site in Kings Norton. The company, which is owned by Japan’s NSG Group, is consolidating its UK operations within the Redditch site.

M&G Real Estate was represented by Trebor Developments and NSG Group by JLL.
