St. Modwen Logistics has supported Genpower, a flourishing Welsh business, to scale-up into a sustainable, 100,000ft2 warehouse which will provide economic growth in the region. This comes at a time when the South West and Wales regions are experiencing a shortage of quality, Grade A warehouse space.
The big-box warehouse at St. Modwen Park Newport will allow Genpower – which appeared in the Wales Fast Growth 50 list in 2021– to continue its offering of a complete e-fulfilment service. This involves picking, packing and distributing Hyundai Power Products across the UK. The move has created 25 additional jobs within the company, with this figure expected to increase as orders continue to rise.
St. Modwen Park Newport is located at the gateway to South Wales, just 12 miles from Cardiff and 30 miles from Bristol. The park follows the St. Modwen Swan Standard, with enhancements across five key areas including environment and sustainability, well-being, community, transport, and security.
The new warehouse delivers a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ and EPC A rating through the inclusion of building fabric designed to improve air tightness above current building regulation; photovoltaic solar panels and EV Vehicle Charging that reduce energy demand, costs and carbon impact for the customer.
Genpower is also investing in sustainability and has committed to giving back to the planet through its tree planting scheme. This sees one tree planted for every order that is dispatched and the business has already planted around 230,000 trees in the past 18 months.
