Canmoor secures major industrial pre-let deal

CANMOOR warehouse developers have agreed terms for Scotland’s largest industrial pre-let for five years.

The London-based firm’s development will see wholesaler JW Filshill relocate to a brand new, purpose-built distribution centre at Westway Park, near Glasgow Airport.

The 120,400 square foot distribution centre will be constructed subject to planning permission, with 10,000 square foot of office space also in plans.

Simon Hannah, managing director of Filshill said, “The facility is being built to our exact specification and will provide pallet capacity of 12,000 in a 14-metre high warehouse with 12 loading docks. There will also be 10,000 square foot of fresh and chilled space to accommodate growth in this category and allow us to expand into the foodservice and on-trade sector in the future.”

Fillshill supply 185 Keystore convenience stores across Scotland and England, and are expected to record a turnover of £155 million this year.

Rob Large, director of Canmoor, said on the partnership, “To have a company of Filshill’s calibre make such a substantial commitment to Westway is a tremendous endorsement, following the significant investment and improvements we have made since purchasing last year.

“We are delighted to be able to assist Filshill facilitate its exciting expansion plans which will provide real employment opportunities in the area.”

Planning permission has been sought from Renfrewshire Council for the development of a 6.7-acre site on the south side of Westway Park.
