INDEPENDENT mail and logistics services company UK Mail Group has moved its South Yorkshire operation from the Hellaby Industrial Estate to a 27,232 sq ft industrial unit at the Magna 34 Business Park in Rotherham.
UK Mail Group’s property manager, Paul Hutchinson, said: “We now have around 80 employees in our South Yorkshire operation and had outgrown our existing facility.
“Due to the nature of our business, we need quick and direct connectivity to the motorways and the ability to access multiple routes should one be affected by traffic.
“Magna 34 provides this in addition to offering the flexibility to tailor and fit-out the unit to our exact specifications.”
Magna 34 was developed by Jaguar Estates and Loxley Land and Property and UK Mail Group’s unit is the largest of eight industrial units that comprise the first phase of the development.
Jaguar Estates’ Patrick Herbert said: “We are delighted to be welcoming such a reputable firm to our already strong tenant mix.
“With just one small and one large industrial unit left and limited office availability, Phase 1 has been an incredible success and we will now be looking ahead to Phase 2.”
Plans for the second phase of Magna 34 include design and build opportunities for office accommodation from 2,000 to 20,000sq ft and industrial units from 2,500 to 40,000 sq ft.
GVA Grimley and Knight Frank represented the developers.
