PPE manufacturer and distributor snaps up Birmingham shed for new HQ

Manufacturer and wholesaler of Personal Protective Clothing and Equipment Beeswift has taken CBRE Global Investors 120,000 sq ft warehouse known as Hub 120, in Birmingham, West Midlands as it s new corporate headquarters and national distribution centre.

The company has secured a 16-year lease on the property located at junction 6 of the M6 motorway.

Rob Trevor, Senior Director, UK Industrial & Logistics, CBRE Global Investors said: “We have worked very hard on a collaboration with the team at Beeswift over the last nine months to design a custom built extension of the existing building to suit their operational requirements.

“This project includes extended first floor offices, laboratory space, mezzanines, sprinklers, racking and Wellness facilities. Beeswift are operating as a key supply chain to the NHS and this will allow them to expand and increase capacity at this time of national need.”

Les Giles, CEO, Beeswift said: “Having successfully moved our Dutch company into 40,000 sq ft of modern distribution facility a week before lockdown in February, we are now totally focused on this seven month project to re locate Beeswift to its new corporate HQ and distribution centre.

This is part of a jigsaw that is falling into place as the company, supported heavily by its shareholders, expands and develops into key strategic markets and regions.”

Letting agents were CBRE, Knight Frank and Savills.
