Dogmates agrees 15 yr lease for Doncaster warehouse

Fast-growing dog food brand Dogmates has signed for a 151,388 sq ft Doncaster warehouse.

Tritax Symmetry, the dedicated logistics development company of Tritax Big Box, has agreed a 15 year lease for its speculatively built unit at Symmetry Park, Doncaster with Dogmates Ltd trading as Butternut Box.

The unit comes with scope for expansion of up to 250,000 sq ft as the operation grows further. Butternut Box expects to commence its fitout immediately and become operational by March 2021.

Butternut Box currently operates two separate sites for manufacturing and fulfilment but Symmetry Park Doncaster will facilitate a move to an end-to-end, in-house operation.  The central location, just off Junction 34 of the A1 (M) is also critical for its distribution around the UK.

Established four years ago, Butternut Box makes high quality dog food with fresh ingredients, which customers can custom order online for direct delivery to their door. It has enjoyed critical acclaim and is identified as a brand for strong growth potential. Over last 12 months alone it has received over £20 million from investors recognising that it is well placed to benefit from strong consumer trends among pet owners.
