Cantt Pak has let a 132,000 sq ft industrial unit at Manor Park in Runcorn to US-based medical supplies manufacturer Medline.
Medline has entered into a 17-year lease at a headline rental of £5.25/sq ft.
Howard George, senior director of industrial agency at CB Richard Ellis North West, advising Cantt Pak, said: "This is superb news in what has been a particularly difficult period for take up in the North West. This facility is built to the highest specification and Medline were keen to acquire a striking building which matched their image as a progressive company expanding into the European market."
George said there is a lack of quality distruibution space in the region following a series of large lettings in the past 12 months: 610,000 sq ft at the Vault in Speke to B&M, Tesco taking 600,000 sq ft at 3MG in Widnes, AMS taking 130,000 sq ft at Winsford, and Eddie Stobart letting 360,000 sq ft at Manor Park.
