The 24,288 sq ft unit has been let to newly-formed distribution company Ascent Transport on a new 5-year lease at a headline rental of £4 per sq ft. Up to 20 staff will be based at the site distributing a range of products including computer accessories, pet care products and IT equipment nationally.

The interest shown in the site and in this letting is further evidence of the continued demand for quality space around the north west’s prime motorway locations.”
