The logistics firm has signed a 15-year lease with landowner William Fishwick & Sons to occupy a speculative warehouse next to its existing headquarters at Haydock Cross Industrial Estate.
Under the terms of the deal, Law Distribution will design and build the 120,000 sq ft warehouse on Kilbuck Lane, known as Arc 130, and work to erect the steel frame has begun.
Construction of the facility, which will include 12,000 sq ft of offices, is expected to complete later this year.
The landlord was represented by Colliers International.
William Fishwick appointed Colliers and Littler & Associates to market the eight-acre site in 2016 having been granted planning consent for its redevelopment by St Helens Council the same year.
Other occupiers at the wider Haydock Industrial Estate, located off junction 23 of the M6, include wholesalers Booker and Costco, as well as Sainsbury’s.
