CATERING equipment supplies firm Nisbets has taken over a Yorkshire warehouse to make it easier to deliver to northern customers.
The Bristol-based firm, which has a turnover of more than £200m, has taken the 145,000 sq ft Balby Carr Bank building in Doncaster owned by Threadneedle Pensions.
Nisbets’ logistics partner Price Express Transport will operate the warehouse, which will be used to hold stock for Nisbets enabling it to reduce its cut off time for orders from customers in the North for next day delivery.
The unit is now operational following a programme of refurbishment works.
Andrew Gent, from industrial agent Gent Visick, said “The letting of this unit further reduces the available warehouse space in the south Yorkshire area. We are now at the lowest level of standing stock since 2006 and whilst some
speculative development is under way it is fair to say that demand has now outstripped supply”.
Gent Visick advised Threadneedle Pensions Limited whilst Knight Frank and Russell Property Consultants acted on behalf of Nisbets.
