GLP has announced that it has leased a 90,000 sq ft unit at its G-Park Northampton site. The 90,000 sq ft warehouse has been let to SF Express, a global customer of GLP.
The leasing of Unit 2 marks SF Express’ first UK Distribution Centre and will form part of its expanding Supply Chain overseas strategy. GLP has delivered over 5.4m sq ft of logistics space for SF Express in China, making them one of GLP’s largest customers in China.
The G-Park Northampton’s location puts 90% of the population of England and Wales within a four-hour HGV drive time.
G-Park Northampton is located within Moulton Park and comprises three units and one build-to-suit logistics warehouse from 50,000 to 155,000 sq ft. Grade ‘A’ rated, the highly specified buildings are suitable for a range of occupiers including last mile logistics, 3PLs, retail/FMCG and manufacturers.
Simon Truss, General Manager for Western Europe at SF Express, said, “We are very excited to open 90,000 sq ft of warehousing capacity in Northampton. Following an extensive review we selected Moulton Park because of its optimal location and build quality. The facility will focus on National Distribution for our high value products, and as such will be fitted out to a very high standard.”
Joe Garwood, Development Director at GLP Europe, said, “As a long-standing global customer of GLP, we are thrilled to expand our relationship with SF Express and support their expansion into the UK. We look forward to continued collaboration in the UK and beyond”.
