Transport firm leases entire industrial estate to deliver growth
KB Transport Solutions has expanded its logistics and warehousing operations by taking out almost an entire industrial estate in Coventry.
The firm, which is aiming to consolidate its operations and accommodate growth, now occupies 130,000 of the 136,000 sq ft at the Sandy Lane Industrial Estate, owned by The Wigley Group.
KB’s main site had been at Henley Road Industrial Estate in Coventry where it occupied around 70,000 sq ft, in addition to 54,000 sq ft at Sandy Lane Industrial Estate. Both sites are also owned by The Wigley Group.
The firm was established in 2010 and specialises in pallet distribution, warehouse storage, logistics and transport services in the West Midlands and throughout the UK.
Alan Mohomed, finance director, said: “Our business has grown over the years and now reached the point where we needed to expand our premises as we were at capacity.
“We have had a smaller presence at Sandy Lane Industrial Estate for some time and this full relocation here will enable us to develop further and bring all of our warehouse operations together on one central site rather than being fragmented at different locations.”
James Davies, director of The Wigley Group, said: “We have seen KB Transport Solutions grow at our Henley Road and Sandy Lane Industrial Estates, which are both popular due to their prime locations in the centre and north of Coventry.
“We are delighted to have provided this opportunity at Sandy Lane Industrial Estate to support the company’s ongoing expansion and consolidate its main business operations.”
The move makes KB Transport Solutions the single largest tenant of The Wigley Group in terms of space occupied.
