Packaging firm wraps up deal to expand its warehouse capacity

Reusable packaging specialist, Tosca, has finalised a new 10-year lease from Onward Holdings Ltd, doubling the company’s warehousing capacity at the West Yorkshire site.

The deal combines two 30,000 sq ft units on the Green Lane Industrial Park, in Featherstone.

Tosca acquired a warehouse at the location around eight years ago, shortly after the facility was built. The firm says it acted quickly when the unit next door became available, as this coincided with its expansion strategy for the region.

Steve Raybould, Tosca’s operations director UK & Ireland, said: “The signing of a new and extended lease with Onward at the Featherstone site builds on our existing relationship with Onward and makes an important commitment to support our UK business for the long-term, with the enlarged footprint giving us additional capacity in this important geographic area.”

Onward director, Neil Storey, added: “Tosca is a long-standing client and has been operating out of Featherstone for many years.

“They had first bite of the cherry when next door became available and agreed a new lease on the whole site.”
