Fashion industry logistics provider takes almost 600,000 sq ft at Magna Park


GLP, the developer and operator of logistics real estate has signed a new lease agreement with Bleckmann, a logistics provider for companies in the fashion and lifestyle industry, for its 587,662 sq ft MPC 3 unit at Magna Park Corby.

MPC 3 is now the largest building in Bleckmann’s portfolio, and now the third occupied building with GLP, with the first two in Magna Park Lutterworth, bringing the total occupied space with GLP to over 965,000 SQ FT.

Founded in 1862, Bleckmann has evolved from a transport company into a supply chain solutions provider with a specific expertise in e-fulfilment solutions in the fashion and lifestyle industry.

Mark Van Onna, general manager real estate at Bleckmann, said: “The combination of availability, capacity and sustainability was unique and perfectly matched our requirements. The 588,000 sq ft footprint of the building and an internal clear height of 18 meters, enables us to utilize the cubic meters of the building in a very efficient way. With a BREEAM Outstanding certificate, this is a future proof building which we have added to the Bleckmann UK portfolio. This is our third transaction with GLP in the UK which clearly demonstrates our professional partnership.”

James Atkinson, development director at GLP, added: “Magna Park Corby’s importance as a logistics hub is strengthened by this significant agreement with Bleckmann. Their decision to establish a presence at Magna Park Corby recognises the UK as being a crucial growth market for their business. We continue to see strong demand for modern best-in-class, sustainable logistics warehouses and are delighted to see Magna Park Corby continuing to grow.”
