An airline catering giant has signed up for a 102,500 sq ft warehouse at Manchester Airport.
Alpha LSG has agreed a lease at Unit 4 of the £100m Icon Manchester Airport development by Stoford Developments and TPG Real Estate.
Alpha is the latest major occupier to be unveiled by Icon Industrial at the rapidly growing logistics area of Airport City, following the announcement of a new logistics and global content creation studio for online beauty retailer, The Hut Group. The site is also home to DHL, Amazon, a BP Petrol Filling Station, Costa Coffee and M&S Simply Food.
Icon Manchester Airport is a 45-acre build to suit logistics/warehouse development and part of the Airport City masterplan. The scheme offers excellent road, air and rail connections with immediate access to junction 6 of the M56 motorway and Greater Manchester.”
Alex Forbes, Chief Executive Officer of Alpha LSG, said: “This new building is a significant investment in our future in Manchester and beyond. We see this as an opportunity to launch lots of new improved initiatives across our entire network such as continued environmental agenda, the reduction in single use plastics, agile working, wellbeing in the workplace and interactive communications to name but a few.”
The site benefits from the A6 Manchester Airport Relief Road, a £290 million dual carriageway linking the A6 and M56 that is expected to significantly reduce journey times to Manchester Airport. Alpha LSG is jointly owned by dnata and LSG Sky Chefs.
