Logistics firm Owens Group is continuing to expand its warehousing footprint after the company was awarded a “significant” contract expansion. The llanelli-based haulier has signed a five-year lease for a for a 60,589 sq ft industrial warehouse at Aberaman Park Industrial Estate in South Wales.
Comprising a warehouse and distribution unit previously occupied by Rocialle Healthcare, the site forms part of Aberaman Park Industrial Estate, which is close to the A459, 25 miles north west of Cardiff and within easy reach of the A470 and M4. Other occupiers in the vicinity include Screwfix, Toolstation and Royal Mail.
“This is another significant milestone in our growth trajectory and follows the recent acquisition of a 160,000 sq ft warehouse at Wales One in Magor, Monmouthshire, and a 95,000 sq ft new site in Cardiff Port. Our expansion to C1 Trade Park forms part of our commitment to deliver a first-class service for our clients, as well as creating new jobs to help drive investment in the South Wales community. The region is key to us, and the place where Owens Group began 50 years ago with just one van,” said Ian Owen, managing director at Owens Group.
The deal was brokered by real estate firm Cushman & Wakefield’s south west logistics and industrial team on behalf of the landlord, Richard Hayward Properties.
“We are pleased to support the continued growth of Owens Group in the South Wales region. This is the second deal that we have successfully completed with them in the past year. We’re confident that this facility, with its easily accessible location and attractive specification, including a sizeable secure yard and dock loading capabilities, will further enhance Owens’ ability to efficiently store for their client,” added Chris Yates, partner in Cushman & Wakefield’s UK logistics and industrial team.
