Eddie Stobart Logistics has agreed to take a 630,000 sq ft Warrington warehouse to replace its existing 145,000 sq ft facility in the town.
The haulier has agreed with Liberty Properties to replace the existing unit at Stretton Green, close to junction 9 of the M56 and junction 20 of the M6 motorways.
The proposal is now with Warrington Council. Stobart moved its HQ to Warrington in 2014. Stobart Group has been involved in a legal dispute with former chief executive Andrew Tinkler. The board terminated his employment earlier this month.
Stobart Group has begun pursuing Mr Tinkler in the courts for a tax liability it says is worth £3.8m plus interest.
