A food wholesaler is the latest occupier at a Birmingham industrial estate, taking on a 58,000sq ft warehouse as a national distribution centre.

The 58,262 sq ft unit at Tyseley Park has been snapped up by Romanian food supplier Marion Trading on a three-year term.

Neil Slade of Harris Lamb’s commercial agency team, who oversaw the letting, said: “We continue to be inundated with enquiries around industrial property throughout the West Midlands and terms were very quickly agreed on this distribution hub at the centre of the UK motorway network.

“Throughout the pandemic, we have found that the few available warehouses within the area have been quickly taken up by retailers requiring extensive space to fulfil their online operations, something that has not abated with the reopening of non-essential retail and distribution firms seeking convenient national access links.

“At over 55,000 sq ft, this was the last remaining unit of its type at the site. With industrial stock further diminishing by the week, our agency team is working closely with landlords and developers to identify opportunities to deliver more warehousing across the Midlands in order to keep pace with demand.”
