Magnet attracted to larger space at Lingfield Point »

 

Our industrial offer for warehousing and logistics has shown its massive pull for regional businesses after Magnet increased its base six-fold.

Magnet already occupied a 12,000 sq ft space but has now taken a huge 76,000 sq ft unit – which is great news for our Darlington business park and proves the massive potential for the Eastern Growth Zone of Darlington.

Jonathan Simpson, of Connect Property North East, said: “The fact that Lingfield Point is so accessible to the region, with routes that connect to major roads make it an ideal logistics hub for Magnet.

“This letting represents the largest warehouse letting in the Tees Valley so far this year and follows quickly the recent letting of 25,000 sq ft to JLM Foods on the park.”

Our accessibility is a massive pull for logistics

Simon Hay, Warehouse Operations Manager, said: “Magnet is a growing company and we needed to expand into a much bigger warehousing space in a convenient and easy to access location. This move is very important to our future so it was vital we took the right decision.

“Our original base at Lingfield Point gives us everything we need, with top class on-site facilities and extensive security. After looking around the region we could not find anywhere that came close – so we were delighted Lingfield could accommodate such a huge expansion.

“The new site represents a commitment by Magnet to continue to invest in Darlington and will create a fit for purpose facility to support our future growth strategy.”

 

Eddie Humphries, Lingfield Point Estate Manager, said: “There’s only one thing we love more than welcoming new customers and that’s seeing our existing firms grow and prosper like Magnet. The fact we have exemplary transport links – with road, rail, sea and air routes all within 30 minutes’ drive time – will be important to Magnet – as well as the superb 24 hour security with extensive CCTV which are obviously vital to our customers.”

Jonathan Simpson added “Lingfield Point is the only scheme in Darlington that can offer immediate use of warehouse and logistics space of 20,000 sq ft+”
Already the base for a number of national occupiers and distribution centres, Lingfield Point can offer units from as little as 800sqft through to 100,000sqft+; offering flexible lease lengths, storage and 3rd party logistics support on easy terms.

With superb security, 24 hour gatehouse and hub, gated entrances, vehicle recognition and extensive CCTV – why not locate your logistics business at Lingfield?

Paul Huggins, Chief Executive, said: “We are an expanding business and needed more space close to our HQ in Darlington and Lingfield Point provided the ideal location.

“The logistics here, being so close to road, rail and sea links, are ideal for a company like JLM Global Foods as we have to move stock fast and efficiently.

“We’ve been very impressed with the space and the facilities here – it is extremely secure and yet very accessible which is the perfect combination for us.

“And our staff are delighted there is an on-site canteen – even though we’re never short of a snack or two!”

Julian Brooke, of Lingfield Warehousing and Logistics, said:

“We are really delighted to welcome JLM Global Foods to Lingfield Point. They join a growing number of national and international firms choosing to base themselves with us. “Our continuing success is due to our ideal location, great infrastructure, flexibility in terms of both space and leases and the unrivalled security we offer – from CCTV, to 24-hour security and gated entrances.”

Connect Property North East’s Jonathan Simpson who markets the industrial offer at Lingfield Point said:

“This letting characterises the recent upturn in the regional industrial and logistics market that we have witnessed over the last 12 months. We have now reached a position where demand is now starting to significantly outstrip supply, particularly in both Newton Aycliffe and Darlington. Both the strength of the regional manufacturing sector and the recent opening of the new Hitachi train building facility is further enhancing Lingfields Point and Darlington as a strategic location.

Jonathan Simpson added “Lingfield Point is the only scheme in Darlington that can offer immediate use of warehouse and logistics space of 20,000 sq ft+”

Already the base for a number of national occupiers and distribution centres, Lingfield Point can offer units from as little as 800sqft through to 100,000sqft+; offering flexible lease lengths, storage and even 3rd party logistics support on easy terms.

With superb security, 24 hour gatehouse and hub, gated entrances, vehicle recognition and extensive CCTV – why not locate your logistics business at Lingfield?
