Cosmetics brands to establish UK manufacturing hub | South West Property News
A well-known cosmetics brand has signed for additional units at Fleets Corner Business Park in Poole in a move that will see the company establish the site as its UK manufacturing and distribution hub.
Lush has chosen two of Fleets Corner’s refurbished warehouse units with a combined gross internal area of approximately 103,000 sq ft.
The signings will take Lush’s total space at Fleets Corner to 275,000 sq ft and establish the site as its UK manufacturing and distribution hub.
Chase Clark, Lush manufacturing director, said: “The signing of the A1 and A2 units at Fleets Corner Business Park is part of Lush’s strategic plan to secure the right space in the right place.
“The addition of these alongside our existing presence at the park takes 66 per cent of our Poole based operations within Fleets Corner. This enables us to consolidate our manufacturing campus on the Nuffield Industrial Estate, supporting current capacity and future growth.”
Stephen Ellis, senior investment manager at Federated Hermes, added: “We are committed to supporting and nurturing existing occupiers at Fleets Corner, helping their businesses to grow by providing high quality, easily accessibly space that can fulfil a variety of needs.
“By working closely with Lush, we have been able to provide them with space that meets all their requirements, and their loyalty is a great vote of confidence for other occupiers.”
Galena Real Estate, JLL, Goadsby and CBRE acted for Federated Hermes on the deal.
