January 22, 2024
Jungheinrich UK, one of the leading intralogistics providers, is opening a new location in Buckinghamshire
The company has agreed a three-year lease on a 9,232 sq ft distribution unit at Bradwell Abbey industrial estate in Milton Keynes. Paul Quy, associate and head of agency at Kirkby Diamond in Milton Keynes, acted on behalf of Tilstone Partners, advisor to owners, Warehouse REIT, in securing the deal.
Paul said: “We are thrilled to welcome one of the biggest names in intralogistics to Bradwell Abbey. Their arrival is a massive vote of confidence in the estate which has undergone extensive refurbishment in the past 18 months or so following Warehouse REIT’s acquisition of the site.
“Comprising of Bradwell Abbey Park and Bradwell Abbey Hub (the latter formerly Abbey Court), the estate provides occupiers with an excellent location from which to operate, with a range of comprehensively refurbished units from around 750 sq ft up to 20,000 sq ft.
“Alongside the energy efficient building refurbishments, the site benefits from improved amenities and a dedicated estate office with on-site management team. It’s a place that has all the right ingredients for companies like Jungheinrich to thrive.” -site management team
Situated in Bradwell Abbey, the units benefit from excellent transport links, with the A5 dual carriageway in immediate proximity and Junction 14 of the M1 motorway approximately a 10 minute drive from the site. Milton Keynes Central Station is also easily accessible with the estate located just over two miles to the north west of Central Milton Keynes.
