Logistics firm needs more space

EXPANSION plans have prompted a logistics specialist to move to bigger premises.

BJS Storage and Distribution has relocated from a 50,000 sq ft warehouse to one more than three times the size at St Modwen’s Parkside Industrial Estate.

Employing 52 people, the company has further plans for growth after securing several new contracts.

Managing director Barry Sharp said: “Ever since we agreed our ten-year lease with St Modwen, we’ve been greatly anticipating this move, fully aware of the potential the new site can offer to our expanding business; potential we are already beginning to realise.”

The latest move meant that all the buildings at Parkside, which have been refurbished, are now fully let.

St Modwen is now concentrating of providing further secure storage solutions via an open storage area where it is providing fenced compounds of up to ten acres at the site on Wheatley Hall Road.
