Cheshire’s tallest warehouse is on the market after a local business moved its operation overseas.
Cushman & Wakefield has been appointed to find new occupiers for the 151,000 sq ft Preston Brook unit after hydraulics and pneumatics manufacturer Parker Hanafin, moved its manufacturing operations overseas.
Before Parker Hanafin, the 28-to-eaves unit was occupied by Wincanton Logistics.
Sam Royle, Senior Surveyor in Cushman & Wakefield’s Logistics & Industrial Team, said: “This is a rare opportunity to secure a high specification facility in a strategic location. One of the key selling points of the building is the eaves height in the high bay section which are up to 28m and we believe to be the loftiest distribution facility available in the North of England at present.”
He continued: “Wincanton Logistics, utilised the building to its maximum cubic capacity with over 32,000 pallet positions. Since acquiring the premises from Wincanton Plc in 2013 our client has invested over £3 million into the building and it now provides fully refurbished high quality offices, an increased number of loading bays and a super flat floor in the high bay warehouse amongst other improvements. We are already witnessing strong demand from the distribution and logistics sector and there is also appetite from the investor market which has responded well to the initial marketing campaign.”
