Goodman completes 93,000 sq ft Midlands distribution space to drive supply chain efficiency

To meet continued customer demand for well-connected distribution space close to consumers, Goodman has completed a 93,000 sq ft high-specification facility at Centrum Logistics Park, Burton-upon-Trent.

Fronting the A38, Centrum 93 offers customers strong connectivity, with easy access to the A50 and national motorway network. The area is already home to a collection of well-known companies including Boots, Holland and Barrett, Clipper Logistics, DHL and Unipart, with 17.7 million people accessible within a two-hour HGV drivetime*. This latest development builds on Goodman’s long-term investment at Centrum Logistics Park, having previously delivered the largest drive-through distribution centre in Europe for Palletforce.

Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire are key areas for manufacturing and major contributors to employment growth nationally. Over seven million people live within an hour’s drivetime, while the majority of the UK’s major cities can be accessed within three hours, placing consumers and talent within easy reach.* Supporting local recruitment, the site is within walking distance of leisure facilities and food outlets, offering amenities for customers.

Available for immediate occupation, Centrum 93 is built to a Grade A specification, with 1MVA of power capable of running investments in technology and automation, a 10m clear internal height and high-quality office space, offering customers flexibility and supporting operational efficiency.

The sustainable property will help businesses to achieve energy efficiencies and have a lower carbon footprint, contributing to ongoing cost savings. Achieving an A-rated energy performance certification (EPC), the property features a solar PV system of 100kWp to generate clean energy, LED lighting to improve efficiency, and electric vehicle (EV) charging points and EV infrastructure to enable the next generation of vehicle fleets.

Nigel Dolan, Development Director at Goodman, said:

“Strategically located distribution and logistics space provides essential infrastructure for businesses seeking to improve supply chain efficiency, reduce costs and lead times. A sustainable property in a Grade A location means that Centrum 93 provides customers with space to support their own long term sustainability and growth ambitions.
