Merico Limited, trading as Pickit and Packit, have expanded their Central England presence by taking on a 12,000 sq ft unit in Burton.
The deal was negotiated by Phil Randle of Salloway Property Consultants on behalf of a private landlord client.
Paul Lawson, Director of Merico Limited, said: “Our aim is to enhance the traditional warehousing experience with a new focus on customer relationship building and additional services aimed at eCommerce customers such as eBay, Amazon, Play.com and Magento, to name but a few.
“With more than seventeen years of successful operations under our belt, we have seen our customer base develop, and now have regular clients from across the country and more than half a dozen distinct industry sectors.
“So much so that we require more space than our current 40,000 sq ft warehouse facility on Anglesey Road allows. The letting of Unit A, Dallow Street offers us an opportunity to remain in Burton upon Trent, which we consider to be at the heart of Britain’s motorway network and ideal for serving customers anywhere in the country.”
Phil Randle, Partner of Salloway Property Consultants, added: “We couldn’t agree more with Paul, Burton continues to be an attractive prospect for many businesses being within easy reach of the M1, M6 and adjoining motorway network. We are delighted that the letting of Dallow Street has provided an additional base for Merico and the chance to remain in Burton.”
