The postal operator has taken a 10-year lease on M&G Real Estate’s Logistics 225 unit, a 225,000 sq ft warehouse within Harworth Group’s Logistics North development in Bolton.
The new site will see Whistl consolidate existing operations from Leeds and Warrington.
Logistics 225 and its neighbouring Logistics 175 unit was fully funded by M&G Real Estate, with Harworth Group constructing the units on the company’s behalf. Both warehouses practically completed in December 2016, prior to Whistl confirming its move to the larger unit.
Whistl is targeting a spring opening for its depot.
Other tenants at Logistics North include Aldi, MBDA, Joy Global, Costa Coffee, Green King and Lidl.
Logistics North has outline planning permission for 4m sq ft of commercial development.
Nick Wells, chief executive of Whistl, said: “The new depot will enable us to provide an excellent working environment for our colleagues as well enable us to continue providing high quality and efficient services to our customers. We look forward to working with Bolton Council on recruiting people to work at Whistl in the coming months.”
