Manchester based chilled and ambient 3PL Romac Logistics has expanded into a new head office and distribution centre at COIF Charities Property Fund’s Unit 66 warehouse on the Stakehill Industrial Estate in Middleton, Manchester.
The move enhances Romac’s UK locations and service offering, adding an 80,000 sq ft temperature controlled warehouse to the company’s portfolio, which sits in an extensive 8.5 acre site and is close to junction 20 of the M62.
Rob McAdoo from Romac Logistics said: “At this stage in our growth it was important to evolve our service offering whilst taking stock of our infrastructure. In consolidating two of our smaller operations and merging the head office into the distribution centre at Stakehill Industrial Estate we will deliver an abundance of efficiencies that will ultimately benefit our customers.
“The new facility also provides us with a fantastic office space that will accommodate our senior leadership team, customer services, network planning and finance functions, all under one roof. This will further enhance the level of service our customers enjoy and give us space to grow as we embark on our next phase of expansion.”
Property consultancy Gent Visick advised Romac Logistics and negotiated the leasehold acquisition. The site was marketed by BC Real Estate on behalf of CCLA, fund managers for the owner, the COIF Charities Property Fund.
Romac Logistics was founded in Manchester in early 2018 and has rapidly expanded. The company now operates more than 200 tractor units and approximately 350 trailers throughout the UK, with additional strategically located bases in Leeds, Bolton, Doncaster, Avonmouth, County Durham, Wednesbury, Southampton, Northfleet, Bridgend and Peterborough.
