Logistics giant agrees terms on Renfrew move

CANMOOR has announced it has welcomed Agility Logistics to Westway Park in a major deal for the developer.

Relocating from Linwood to Renfrew, Agility has agreed terms on 40,000 sq ft of warehousing and distribution space on a ten-year lease. The business, which operates in 100 countries, manages the distribution of goods for businesses across a variety of sectors.

Agility employs more than 26,000 people globally. The Renfrew facility is the only one in Scotland and will join a network of 16 locations across the UK.

Mick Humphries, area north west Europe transport & warehouse manager of Agility, said, “Our business in the UK continues to develop and we were looking to expand the Scottish facility. Connectivity and communication links were key business requirements and Westway was able to deliver the perfect solution, along with top quality space, within a 24-hour secure environment. We will undertake fit out works at Westway and become fully operational by April 2021.”

Toby Saul, asset manager of Canmoor, added, “Westway continues to be one of the top performing industrial and logistics locations in Scotland. Securing Agility is yet another positive boost for the park, following on from recent lockdown deals with Malcolm Group and the NHS. It is clear that our ongoing strategy of investment and improvement is proving popular with occupiers in the Scottish market. Since purchasing Westway in 2018, we have invested significantly into building refurbishment and park infrastructure.

“Our programme of building refurbishment and investment in park infrastructure will continue with the £3,000,000 refurbishment of Block D which will provide 40,000 sq ft to be let to Agility and a further 60,000 sq ft of top quality refurbished distribution accommodation which will be available to let from April 2021.”

Canmoor’s joint agents are JLL and Colliers. Agility was represented by Doherty Baines.
