Gazeley, the investor and developer of logistics warehouses and distribution parks, has leased a 186,000 sq ft unit at its Magna Park Lutterworth site to Bleckmann, a market leader in Supply Chain Management (SCM) services for fashion and lifestyle brands.
The unit has been leased on a long term lease and will serve as Bleckmann’s new distribution centre in the UK.
The unit, Tornado 186, has been designed to include a range of leading sustainability features, including online energy dashboards to help customers monitor energy usage, as well as rainwater harvesting and technology to optimise the use of natural light.
Joe Garwood, Development Director, Gazeley, said: “We are delighted to announce Bleckmann as the newest member of our customer community and look forward to growing our partnership with them in the years to come.”
Magna Park Lutterworth is undergoing development to expand the park from 9 million sq ft of floor space to nearly 16 million sq ft.
