German auto-part business Ferdinand Bilstein UK (FBUK) is to take a 225,000 sq ft distribution centre at Markham Vale, Derbyshire.
FBUK’s new distribution facility will be located on a 14.5 acre plot at Markham Vale North and is the first building to be developed on this part of the 200 acre site.
The move consolates existing operations in Kent.
Paul Dodgson, Operations Director at Ferdinand Bilstein UK, comments: - “We made the decision to move to Markham Vale as the development offers excellent transport links to the main motorway network, which was our key requirement.”
This is the first deal agreed at Markham Vale North, which has a further 55 acres of land available for immediate development. We also have remaining plots available on the West and East sites. Developers are Henry Boot Developments, Derbyshire County Council.
