Watling Street Business Park now fully let

St Modwen has completed a deal to bring packaging business Allgroup to Watling Street Business Park in Cannock. 

Allgroup – which trades as allpack Packaging – has signed a three-year lease for a high-specification unit tatalling 48,632 sq ft. The packing business is expanding from its unit in Aldridge and is the final letting at the scheme.

Comprising of more than 150,000 sq ft of office, storage and warehouse space, Watling Street Business Park is well-connected with direct access to the A5. The site is also conveniently located near the M6 Toll, M6, M42, M54 and A38.

The scheme is already home to Icon Exhibitions and Display Ltd, PRM Green Technologies, Cannock Caravan Accessories and more.

Stuart Evans, Senior Asset Manager at St Modwen Industrial & Logistics, says: “Watling Street Business Park is a key site for suppliers and distributors in the Cannock area. We’re pleased to have let the entire site, particularly during the uncertainty of a global pandemic, providing a high-quality industrial and logistics solution that suits the needs of all our occupiers.”

Bob Clarke, Operations Director at allpack® Packaging, adds: “As a leading packaging supplier in the UK, allpack® Packaging specialise in e-comm and fulfilment and this unit is just what we needed in the ever-changing current economy. We are a fast-paced, fast-growing company and to partner with St. Modwen has been a very smooth transition.”

BNP Paribas Real Estate, Andrew Dixon & Company and Lambert Smith Hampton are joint agents for the scheme.

Matthew Tilt, Director at Lambert Smith Hampton, who agreed the letting, adds: “St Modwen’s ability to continue to attract new business to its Watling Street site during COVID-19 is testament to its proactive approach to lettings and the excellent location the scheme provides.”
