Hauliers Fagan & Whalley have taken occupation of a 92,000 sq ft M65 logistics facility.
The 10-acre site at Bamber Bridge, Lancashire, was developed by Eshton.
Stephen Fagan, commercial director at Fagan & Whalley, said: “The new distribution hub is located at the heart of our long-standing customer base and just one junction down from our existing operations facility and company headquarters. We’re ready to move in and begin our operations from Burnley Bridge.”
Eshton appointed GMI Construction to deliver the building over a 36 week period. The unit, which was funded by Yorkshire Bank, was handed to Fagan and Whalley on Friday 26th May 2017.
The site at junction 9 of the M65 motorway provides parking for up to 80 trailers, with 10 loading bays and 25,000 pallet locations. The development will serve as a major distribution hub for the family-run firm, dramatically increasing its warehousing capacity.
At 19 metres high, the building is the second largest on Eshton’s Burnley Bridge site to date. Occupiers already at Bamber Bridge include YESSS Electrical, Birchall Foodservice, Equinox Building Solutions, Townsend Music and Exertis.
