An expanding logistics and warehousing company has taken on almost a whole industrial estate in Coventry to consolidate its operations and accommodate growth.

KB Transport Solutions now occupies 130,000 of the 136,000 sq ft at the Sandy Lane Industrial Estate, on the edge of the city centre in Radford, which is owned by leading commercial property company The Wigley Group.

Its main site had been at Henley Road Industrial Estate in Coventry, also owned by The Wigley Group, where it occupied around 70,000 sq ft, in addition to 54,000 sq ft at Sandy Lane Industrial Estate.

KB Transport Solutions was established in 2010 and specialises in pallet distribution, warehouse storage, logistics and transport services in the West Midlands and throughout the UK.

Alan Mohomed, finance director at KB Transport Solutions, said: “Our business has grown over the years and now reached the point where we needed to expand our premises as we were at capacity.

“We have had a smaller presence at Sandy Lane Industrial Estate for some time and this full relocation here will enable us to develop further and bring all of our warehouse operations together on one central site rather than being fragmented at different locations.

“It is an exciting development and we’re looking forward to building on our success which is driven by customer demand for our range of services.”

KB Transport Solutions has retained a small presence at Henley Road Industrial Estate for its home delivery business.

Sandy Lane Industrial Estate and Henley Road Industrial Estate are part of The Wigley Group’s extensive portfolio of commercial property which spans well over 1,000,000 sq ft across the West Midlands.

James Davies, director of The Wigley Group, said: “We have seen KB Transport Solutions grow at our Henley Road and Sandy Lane Industrial Estates, which are both popular due to their prime locations in the centre and north of Coventry.

“We are delighted to have provided this opportunity at Sandy Lane Industrial Estate to support the company’s ongoing expansion and consolidate its main business operations.

“The move makes KB Transport Solutions the single largest tenant of The Wigley Group in terms of space occupied.

“The premises vacated by KB Transport Solutions have already been filled at Henley Road Industrial Estate, where we have recently developed a further two industrial units to help meet a lack of commercial property in the city.”
