Great Bear takes second DC at Markham Vale

Logistics company Great Bear will open a second centre at Henry Boot’s 210-acre Markham Vale scheme in Derbyshire, just four months after opening its first.

Building work is set to start on the company’s second 479,285 sq ft distribution centre in January 2017.

Great Bear initially took a 15-year lease on a 480,000 sq ft build to suit distribution centre at Markham Vale earlier this year.

Peter Yarwood, regional operations director at Great Bear Distribution said: “The deal agreed between Henry Boot Developments for a second distribution unit is evidence of the quality of space Markham Vale has to offer. Being located on the M1 corridor, the site fits our needs perfectly.”
