Fiat on hunt for 300,000 sq ft relocation

Carmaker Fiat has started searching for a new distribution centre in the North West after deciding to leave its premises on the A49 in Warrington.

Third party logistics companies are currently competing for the contract to supply car parts across the UK and are busy introducing Fiat to potentially suitable buildings.

Fiat is understood to have viewed Highcross's Phoenix and Royal London's Pioneer Point, both in Ellesmere Port and capable of offering around 400,000 sq ft, as well as Revolution Park in Chorley, owned by CBRE Investors, and Satellite 330 in Chadderton, Oldham, also owned by Royal London.

The North West's big shed market saw take-up reach 1.9m sq ft in the second quarter of this year, a record.
