Prologis UK has announced that it will build a new logistics facility for its customer Rajapack, close to the company’s existing facility at Prologis Park Marston Gate.
Prologis recently secured planning permission for the 261,230 sq. ft square foot industrial logistics building and work on site started in July, when representatives from Prologis, Rajapack and Central Bedfordshire Council met to hold a groundbreaking ceremony.
Rajapack currently operates out of a 100,000 sq. ft facility on Prologis Park Marston Gate; however, due to a growing requirement for space, the company needed a larger building. Moving away from the area would have resulted in significant business disruption and a loss of local jobs and, therefore, Prologis worked with Rajapack to help the French-owned packaging company realise its ambitions for growth from a Prologis-owned site in the neighbouring area of Brogborough.
“By structuring a deal which will enable Rajapack to move from its existing building and seamlessly expand into a larger building nearby, we were able to avoid local job loss and business disruption for the company,” said Oliver Bycroft, Director in the leasing and development team at Prologis UK. “It’s great to see the company investing in the Central Bedfordshire area and we look forward to supporting their continued success.”
