SEGRO has completed the development of a new 177,500 sq ft warehouse distribution facility for Games Workshop at SEGRO Logistics Park East Midlands Gateway ahead of the planned schedule.
Games Workshop, the British manufacturer of fantasy miniatures, signed a 15-year lease for the unit which will become the main distribution hub when it is operational in Autumn 2020. It joins other customers such as Amazon, XPO Logistics, Kuehne & Nagel and ShopDirect on the 700 acre site.
Andrew Pilsworth of SEGRO said: “Despite the construction challenges presented by necessary social distancing guidelines in recent months, we’re pleased to have safely completed the development ahead of schedule while adhering to the new measures.”
As part of the development of SLPEMG, a £100 million infrastructure project has created a new bypass around the local village of Kegworth, a new route to connect the site via a bridge over the M1 motorway and highway improvement works.
To date, over 2 million sq ft of space has been let at SLPEMG contributing to job creation in the local and surrounding areas.
