Highcross has let 56,000 sq ft at its Whittle Estate near Leicester to Gee Force Logistics on a five-year lease.
Gee Force Logistics, which specialises in garment distribution and processing, is relocating from its current site, close to Leicester city centre. The company, which delivers throughout the UK, also provides general logistics services and quality control checks on imported products.
Managing Director, Gee Hothi, said the Whittle Estate’s location was a prime benefit: “The estate’s proximity to the motorway and its convenience for our existing staff were important factors in our relocation, together with the good security on site.”
The 54-acre Whittle Estate includes 668,000 sq ft of industrial and office space and was acquired by Highcross in 2008. Located five miles from central Leicester, the estate has an on-site estate manager, cafe, meeting room facilities and 24-hour manned security.
Highcross asset manager, Joe Curlett comments: “Our flexible approach to accommodating Gee Force within a number of interconnecting buildings, means we could satisfy their quite specific requirement for a large amount of warehouse space, under one roof on a secure estate.”
Joint letting agents for the Whittle Estate are Andrew & Ashwell and Innes England.
