Kitchen supplier to open new depot in Staffordshire

Kitchen and joinery products supplier Howdens is to open a new depot at the £5m Chase Trade Park, in Burntwood, Staffordshire.

National commercial property and investment company LCP, part of M Core, which is behind the new 10-unit, 51,000sq ft site, said Howden’s has signed a 15-year lease for units A1-A3, totalling 8627sq ft.

Nick Bryson, director (industrial) at LCP, said work was progressing well on the former derelict three-acre site, which is located adjacent to Multipark Burntwood zone three, which it owns and manages, with completion expected next spring.

“We’re pleased to confirm that Howdens has agreed to open a new depot at Chase Trade Park, adding to its 800-plus units across the country,” he said.

“When we committed to developing the site, we did so knowing there was demand from businesses for units of this size and with almost half the units already taken, months before the trade park is completed, is testament to that.

“Not only is Chase Trade Park revitalising a derelict piece of land, it is also helping to attract nationally known names and, importantly, jobs to the area. We are in discussions with a number of companies for other units, with advanced talks for block C, and hope to be able to announce further new tenants in the coming weeks.”
