Onward Holdings places Atlas Park on the market

Onward Holdings Ltd is offering businesses a base for a logistics hub in the heart of Yorkshire that is certain to attract significant interest due to the pressure on warehousing space in the UK, amplified by the economic uncertainty surrounding Brexit.

The family-run business is offering 68,560sqft of industrial space to let after purchasing Atlas Park on the Normanton Industrial Estate near Wakefield, one of the region’s most sought-after distribution and manufacturing locations.

Record high levels of occupier take-up in Yorkshire (source: Savills News), coupled with a squeeze in supply levels of suitable logistics units, make Atlas Park an attractive proposition in the warehousing market, especially as it’s on a secure site ideally located adjacent to junction 31 of the M62 providing easy access to the motorway network.

Set in over three acres, Atlas Park comprises a three-bay steel portal framed building with extensive car parking and yard areas. The property has eves of 4.72m-6.15m to underside of haunch, three ground level loading doors and is sprinklered throughout. It also benefits from office and staff facilities (just over 2,000sqft) and the site has potential to be split into two separate units.

Suitable for both durable cargo and ambient food storage, long and short-term leases are available for this latest investment by Onward Holdings in the industrial property market from joint letting agents, In-Site Property Solutions, Colliers International and Holder & Co.

Onward Holdings’ director, Neil Storey, said: “The Atlas Park facility is ideal for businesses seeking a logistics hub in such a key location. Take up of industrial space in the UK at the moment is at a premium so interested parties need to move fast to book a viewing.”

Atlas Park is already generating significant interest as quality warehousing, especially with easy access to transport links, is being driven by e-commerce and discount retailers looking for additional facilities in Yorkshire.

Its great geographical position not only offers fast delivery routes via the nation’s motorway network but other transport connections with northern container ports and Doncaster airport all in close proximity. The railway freight network via the Wakefield Europort is also nearby to make light work of the distribution of goods across a variety of sectors.

Along with supplying the industrial property market, Onward Holdings provides additional value-added warehouse services available to suit most budgets, including 3PL requirements such as Pallet Storage, Container Emptying, Order Picking and Reworking – all controlled by its Managed Warehouse System.

Success in supplying high quality warehousing for a variety of sectors, such as e-commerce, food, high end goods and packaging, makes Onward Holdings one of the leading industrial space providers in the region.
