Logistics group secures 110,000 sq ft at Black Country hub

A manufacturing and logistics hub in the Black Country has reached full occupancy, following its recent agreement with a chilled food and drinks transport group.

Romac Logistics is launching a new centre in the region, having inked a 15-year lease for a 113,470 sq ft warehouse within the Wolf Pack site at Hilton Cross Business Park, Wolverhampton.

The warehouse is one of three new units totalling 224,000 sq ft on the 12-acre Wolf Pack site, developed by property developer, Barberry.

Jon Robinson, development director at Barberry Industrial, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Romac Logistics to our highly successful speculative development at Wolf Pack. Romac is a very ambitious company and is bringing investment and new jobs to the West Midlands.

“In creating Wolf Pack, we have delivered a grade A industrial and logistics hub in Wolverhampton and all three units are now fully let. Our new buildings are built with sustainability credentials in mind that will benefit Romac by reducing occupational costs and fulfilling many environmental, social and corporate governance ratings in measuring the sustainability and social impact of our buildings. We continue to provide the much-needed quality accommodation for businesses to expand their operations within the West Midlands, securing employment and creating new jobs.”

Barberry acquired the site from South Staffordshire Council for an undisclosed sum and enlisted Benniman Construction as the main contractor for the Wolf Pack project.

Knight Frank Investment Management facilitated the site acquisition for its client, Local Pensions Partnership Investment in 2022, which included purchasing the completed buildings, and since then, collaborating with Barberry to secure leases for all three units.

Romac Logistics’ owner Rob McAdoo said: “This strategic move represents a significant milestone in Romac Logistics’ journey and reflects our commitment to providing pioneering and sustainable end-to-end logistics solutions while meeting the evolving needs of our customers. We are confident in our ability to contribute positively to the local economy and we look forward to leveraging this high specification facility to further expand our operations and growth in this strategic location.”
