ST MODWEN TO DEVELOP NEW WAREHOUSE FOR WALSALL FIRM

St Modwen Developments Ltd has exchanged contracts and is shortly to begin construction of a  4,180 sq m (45,000 sq ft)  purpose designed warehouse on its 16-acre Walsall Enterprise Park for G H Stafford, which will acquire the freehold for around £2.5 million.

Planning has already been obtained for both the  4,180 sq m (45,000 sq ft ) warehouse and a further 929 sq m (10,000 sq ft ) of speculative distribution space, which will be built out at the same time.

G H Stafford, which supplies a wide range of leather goods to the trade, will relocate next summer from Town Wharf Business Park to the new premises on Walsall Enterprise Park.

The two units will bring the total development on the estate to more than 18,580 sq m (200,000 sq ft).

Ian Romano of St Modwen, said: “We are delighted G H Stafford selected Walsall Enterprise Park for the relocation of its business. This significant deal demonstrates the ongoing success and high level of demand we are experiencing on the estate from the owner/occupier market looking for well designed and located properties.”

Paul Stafford of G H Stafford said: “As part of our expansion plans,we have been looking at relocating our business.  Our working history is strongly linked with Walsall and we are thrilled to be working with St Modwen who will build our new unit.”

Andrew Dixon represented St Modwen.
