Leading national businesses have joined the tenant line up at Heartlands Park, St. Modwen’s landmark industrial site at Washwood Heath in Birmingham.

J Madden Transport, Paul Ponsonby Limited and Miers Construction have each taken units at the 54 acre industrial park leaving just four bays remaining. Existing high profile clients include Network Rail, West Midlands Ambulance Service and Beko home and kitchen appliances.

Award-winning Paul Ponsonby Limited offers warehousing solutions and specialist distribution for a wide range of national clients from IBM to Claire’s Accessories. It has expanded rapidly, from a single vehicle and small warehouse at its inception in 1998, to a fleet of 12 vehicles and 80,000 sq ft warehousing, including this latest addition of a modern 25,618 sq ft space at Heartlands Park.

J Madden Transport manages offers bespoke warehousing and distribution for a number of leading brands in the telecommunications industry including Orange, Nokia, O2 and Vodaphone. It has leased a 37,392 sq ft warehouse.

Miers Construction, the independent supplier of construction products, has taken 22,000 sq ft at Heartlands adding to its premises in Warrington, Airdrie and Cambridge.

Ian Romano, senior development surveyor at St. Modwen, said: “This raft of lettings business reflects Heartlands Park’s reputation as a popular location for high profile companies. It enjoys a superb location, just one mile from junction 6 of the M6 and under two miles from junction 5, and also benefits from direct rail access.”

Andrew Cosnett, director at property agency BNP Paribas Real Estate, added: “Heartlands Park is situated in close proximity to the JLR Castle Bromwich plant and I have witnessed an increase in the already healthy level of interest as a consequence of this. The remaining available space includes a modern rail-connected bay which is attracting a lot of interest from the burgeoning rail distribution sector.

Heartlands Park is a secure, managed site offering 24 hour access seven days a week. Most buildings can have multiple goods entrances and can be combined with other bays. Land for additional storage can also be made available if required.

The four remaining bays range from 21,000 sq ft to 37,329 sq ft. Interested parties should contact Andrew Cosnett at BNP Paribas Real Estate on 0121 237 1234.
