Gearbox manufacturer Bonfiglioli has taken a 15-year lease on the landlord’s 26,000 sq ft unit at Calver Quay in Warrington.
The manufacturer has taken the refurbished unit at a rent of £6.50/sq ft. Calver Quay is near Junction 9 of the M62 and sits next to the Royal Mail’s North West Distribution Centre.
Other occupiers include AHH Pharmaceuticals, postal logistics firm Secured Mail and wholesaler Top Grade Sportswear.
JLL is the retained agent; Richard Johnson, director in the consultant’s industrial & logistics team said: “Calver Quay offers warehouse occupiers a well-located North West base, providing convenient access to Liverpool and Manchester via the M62, and to the North and South by the M6.
“The unit was refurbished to a high standard and we were confident of achieving a quick letting after the works had completed due to its modern specification, prime location and robust occupier demand coupled with a lack of available direct competition in the area. Bonfiglioli were identified due to their local presence and it was a pleasure to deal with them.”
