Stoford Developments and Oxenwood Real Estate have let a new speculatively-built logistics facility at Stone Cross Park in Warrington.



The 72,740 sq ft warehouse is located on the site of the former Carlsberg brewery depot at Stone Cross Business Park, Golborne, and will be let to global health and safety manufacturer Globus Group, on a 10-year lease.

The manufacturer was recently awarded a contract by the Department of Health and Social Care to supply FFP3 masks.

Stone Cross 72 is the second phase of the Stone Cross Business Park scheme which reached practical completion less than six months ago. Stoford and Oxenwood Real Estate sold the existing 126,000 sq ft logistics facility on Stone Cross Business Park to international packaging firm, ALPLA, last year.

Steven Binnie, director of Globus Group, said: “Our increased PPE manufacturing will enable dedicated frontline healthcare workers to do their jobs safely in the fight against Covid-19 as we move into this critical winter period. This equipment will be produced through our Alpha Solway division at the new Warrington manufacturing facility.”

Tony Nash, director for Stoford Developments, said: “The Stone Cross Business Park scheme was constructed to meet the continuing demand in the warehouse sector in the North West.

“We have delivered two high specification industrial/warehouse units in a prime logistics location with outstanding motorway connectivity that have attracted considerable interest from occupiers.”
