New distribution centre could provide 2,000 jobs


A MAJOR new four-unit industrial/distribution centre providing up to 2,000 jobs is to be built at Omega South, Warrington.
The development on a 757,555 square foot site will be built by Omega Warrington Ltd (OWL) for Mountpark Logistics.
Mountpark Logistics EU Sarl, a joint venture between Mountpark Finco and USAA Realco has been established to undertake logistics development across Europe.
OWL have commenced building works on behalf of Mountpark, and a new access road leading off Skyline Drive is underway. When completed and fully occupied, the new cluster of premises, to be named “Mountpark Warrington”, could support up to 2,000 jobs on the western part of Omega South.
David Milloy, joint managing director of Miller Developments and OWL said: “This announcement marks the second speculative deal done at Omega. It demonstrates that major UK and overseas investors have confidence in the local market and the attraction of Omega to businesses. We look forward to welcoming further occupiers to Omega South and promoting more jobs to local people.”
Mountpark is committed to funding the scheme speculatively – that is, in advance of occupiers being secured, – with three units of 346,153 sq ft, 136,962 sq ft and 90,771 sq ft to be built in a first phase of development and scheduled for completion in November 2018.
A fourth unit totalling 183,669 sq ft is fully consented and will follow as a second phase of construction.
Tom Kilmister, for Mountpark Logistics, said: “We are very excited to be working with OWL on the next phase of development at Omega South. The park has a fantastic reputation as the premier distribution location in the North West, given its excellent connectivity to the National Motorway network and accessibility to the regional population.
“There is currently a distinct shortage of available, good quality industrial and logistics accommodation in Warrington and the North West, providing limited opportunity for businesses looking to expand in to the area or relocate; Mountpark Warrington will provide much needed state-of-the-art accommodation for occupiers seeking quality workspace.”
New occupiers will join ASDA, The Hut Group, Plastic Omnium, Domino’s and Amazon on Omega South, neighbours to Brakes, Hermes, Travis Perkins and Haydock Commercial on Omega North.
