PPB Ltd completes transition to Cross Green site

PPB Ltd has completed its move to a specifically converted warehouse and office premises at Cross Green in the North East of Leeds, including the relocation of its in-house state of the art sheeting and re-rewinding equipment.

The move, supported by Shulmans LLP, has increased its capabilities and storage to over 60,000 square feet of warehouse space, enabling the business to offer a faster order response times through improved workflow from goods-in, conversion, to goods-out; coupled with an increased number of loading bays, improved picking productivity and enhanced stock management. The new warehouse is also home to PPB’s paper based products along with its new industrial plastics unit and Westland digital display portfolio. The move, which represents an investment of say £1.25m, will enable the firm to continue its ambitious expansion plans and accommodate a larger work force, as its success grows.

Richard Proctor, Managing Director for PPB said, “Leeds was the latest stage in our strategic growth plan. With good road links to the North and the M1 to the South, we are now well placed to both accept incoming deliveries from our suppliers and to give fast and effective access to the rest of the UK for our own deliveries to customers.
“This investment is part of our ongoing strategy to provide the widest range of Plastic, Paper & Board, display materials and finishing services for the screen print and digital display markets. Our investment in machinery and stock now allows us to provide a high value service to sign makers, fabricators and wide format digital markets.”

Simon Jackson, Partner and Head of Commercial Property at Shulmans LLP, acted on behalf of PPB Ltd. He drew on his 30 years of experience of dealing with and relocating owners and occupiers in the industrial sector.  Jackson said “We are delighted to have played a key role in PPB’s relocation. We dealt with the disposal of the company’s previously owned site, handled the transitional arrangements and secured the move and development into purpose built premises. This enabled PPB to realise its ambitions of growth within the region. We worked very closely with Richard and his management team to facilitate a smooth a transition to the new location assisting them on the complex legal and practical issues that are peculiar to owners and occupiers. We are confident that PPB is now well placed to continue being a leading name in the sector and have the space to expand its business operations for years to come. We wish them all the best in their continued growth. We created a strong working relationship with their management team and took the time to understand their needs, which meant that we could help them achieve their goals. They were a pleasure to act for and we wish them all the best in their continued growth.”
