Martin Sprocket & Gear opens first European operations

The US materials handling equipment business is to debut in the UK after signing a Midlands warehouse deal.

US-based power transmission specialist Martin Sprocket & Gear has opened its first European operations at Spa Park, Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, signing up for 41,173 sq ft.

Spa Park was jointly developed by Stoford Developments and global asset management company BlackRock.

Phillip Hewitt, General Manager EMEA of Martin Sprocket & Gear UK Ltd, said the new venture means it can service existing and new customers in the Europe, Middle East and Africa regions, as well as complement its facilities across in the USA, Mexico, Brazil and China.

“We looked at many sites across the Midlands and the north of England as our goal was to have a location that is close to the motorway network, to our major customers and to ports and airports. Spa Park ticks all those boxes,” he said.

Spa Park comprises four units and is located on Tachbrook Road. Last year it signed Liberty 920E, part of the  Liberty Vehicle Technologies, for a 50,000 sq ft unit.

Spa Park is close to the A46 and junctions 14 and 15 of the M40. Spa Park is already home to lingerie and swimwear brand Bravissimo, Detroit Electric and global medical business Smith + Nephew.
