KWB Industrial Agency has secured a deal enabling leading UK haulage firm Turners (Soham) Ltd to double its space at Middlemore Lane in Walsall.
The family-owned business has acquired the remaining 4.51 acres at Middlemore Lane, Aldridge. The purchase will help cater for increased demand for its transportation services, with new jobs set to be created.
Middlemore Lane is in a prime Midlands industrial location. It offers access to Aldridge and Walsall town centres, with junction 10 of the M6 just two miles away. The freehold site has dual access points onto the road and a storage compound. It also comes with planning permission for two units suitable for office and industrial use.
Kenny Allan, Director of Industrial Agency at KWB, secured the deal on behalf of long-standing client PSST LLP. The transaction comes after Kenny was appointed to sell a rare 10,000 sq ft industrial unit on 1.72 acres just around the corner, on Middlemore Lane West.
Paul Day, Managing Director of Turners (Soham) Ltd, said: “We have won several new storage and distribution clients recently, so we’re delighted to have acquired this much needed space at our existing Walsall base.
“Middlemore Lane is in a strategic location, offering us easy access to the M6 motorway network and there is an excellent local labour supply.”
Kenny added: “It was a pleasure to deal with Turners (Soham) Ltd on behalf of my client PSST. I look forward to seeing their business thrive further in the Midlands.
“The fact that I am advising on two major industrial schemes around the corner from each other demonstrates a booming market. This has been sparked by a surge in online deliveries following the pandemic and a shortage of space.”
Turners (Soham) Ltd operates over 2,500 Trucks in UK and Europe. It specialises in temperature-controlled transport, and warehousing and container logistics for goods including food, fuel and building products.
