Canmoor Scores a Hat-trick

Manchester, 08 March  - Canmoor has secured three new lettings in its North West industrial portfolio, with over 50,000 sq ft of space leased at its Heywood Distribution Park in North Manchester near Bury, and 2,470 sq ft at its Longwood Park site in Trafford Park.

Kuehne & Nagel, one of the world’s leading logistics providers have taken 41,900 sq. ft. to expand its existing operation at Heywood Distribution Park while FAM Commercials Ltd, commercial vehicle breakdown and recovery experts have taken 9,180 sq. ft.

Neil Buck, general manager at Kuehne & Nagel, said:  “As an existing customer with Canmoor it made sense to expand at Heywood Distribution Park as we can manage and monitor stock more effectively.  The park’s security and location are one of the reasons why our client chose to bring their additional storage to us”

Michael Scott, director at FAM Commercials, said:  “We needed to relocate our business very quickly and Hazel promised that Canmoor could make the leasing process very quick & easy for us.  Every time scale that was promised was met!  It’s early days but we feel we have made a very good decision moving onto Heywood Distribution Park.”

Globe Transport Products Ltd, specialist supplier of quality replacement truck parts for Scania, Volvo and DAF commercial vehicles have taken 2,470 sq. ft. at Longwood Park to establish a new location in Trafford Park. 

Hazel Lambert, Leasing Manager, said: “Heywood Distribution Park is one of the UK’s largest single owned secure distribution parks at over 150 acres and accommodates 2.6 million sq. ft. of warehousing, industrial and distribution property facilities.  Canmoor’s strategy to continue to refurbish and develop property at Heywood Distribution Park & Trafford Park will allow for growth of existing customers, whilst attracting new customers to the portfolio.”
