Digital screen manufacturer Amscreen has appointed Caddick Construction to fit out the unit at Harworth’s 250-acre Logistics North after signing a 10-year lease. 

Amscreen, which is chaired by business tycoon Sir Alan Sugar, becomes the latest tenant to arrive at the 4m sq ft Bolton industrial park. 

The company joins Amazon, which occupies 640,000 sq ft, as well as Lidl, Aldi and Whistl.

Caddick started building Amscreen’s RPS Architects-designed warehouse last October prior to the letting and is now embarking on a £2m fit-out. 

Construction of the £6.5m unit was part-funded through a £3m loan from the Greater Manchester Combined Authority’s Evergreen fund.

JLL and B8 Real Estate are the joint letting agents for the scheme. 

Harworth received outline planning consent for Logistics North in December 2013 and and has so far built out 3m sq ft of industrial space. The development also features a 550-acre country park.
