A 200,000 sq ft motor parts warehouse is to be built in Liverpool, a celebrity event has been told.
The revelation came as Manchester United’s “Class of 92” stars launched Peel Logistics UK development programme.
The event include a question-and-answer session with Gary Neville and an exhibition football match in which the Class of 92 stars went down 5-1 to Salford City FC. The only celebrity goal coming from a Ryan Giggs penalty.
The event at Salford’s AJ Bell Stadium saw Peel Logistics director Matthew Fitton unveil plans for design and build warehousing at the 75-acre multi-modal Port Cheshire site, as well as existing schemes at Port Salford, Knowsley 700 and Liverpool International Business Park where 2m sq ft has been built so far.
Fitton explained proposals were being worked up for a 200,000 sq ft design and build facility that will be marketed directly to the automotive sector.
Peel Logistics comprises land assets from The Peel Group, Peel Ports and through a strategic alliance with Harworth Estates where The Peel Group has a shareholding. Peel Logistics can provide occupiers with development solutions from small industrial units up to 1m sq ft e-fulfilment centres.
